It's this cool little option called M-DCT. Order it next time.

DCT FTW! Porsche is the only car I know that accepts aftermarket sequential shifter conversion kits. It comes with a pretty hefty price to boot.

That's what I really mean, so its not DCT either. Its still has 3 pedals but the only difference is the stick shift itself, its just up and down. So it's not possible to do it on 08-up BMW M3? because I thing its kinda cool,lol
Where the place that you guys know can do it (if can of course)?

I didn't watch the video, but the clutch should only be necessary for launching. I am sure you can put one in an M3 if you are willing to spend enough money. Also, if the transmission is a race transmission, it will have straight cut gears and be very, very loud.

Eitehr way, never new there was a sequential conversion kit for a 911. I would definitely consider that a must if I ever owned one for track duty.
