dct updates

of course we always talk about model redesigns and new engine programs but only to a lesser extent about updates to other components. i was wondering specifically if anyone could provide info as to where we are with respect to the dcts. specifically;is the unit(s) going (presumably) into the upcoming m235 and m2 current or aging, is it(they) due for revision or replacement (or does it even need it) whether to improve overall fxn, reliability, driving satisfaction, etc? thanks for any info

Upcoming M235 will almost certainley NOT get the DCT option, it will instead have the option of the 8-speed ZF automatic as in the mechanically similar M135.

DCT is going to be ///M only, so it will likely feature in the M2, when it eventually appears.
