While the US market will not see the non-///M version of the DCT in a 3 series for some time, if at all, other markets currently do. This 7-Speed dual clutch transmission is available in the E92 coupe and E93 convertible in almost all other markets.
“Gecko ” an enthusiast from Belgium took some video of the shifting in his DCT equipped 3 Series. The first shows “Auto “, very smooth, and the second in “Manual ” with fast shifts almost immediately after the paddle is pressed. We do not encourage filming and driving at such speeds but welcome the video as an example of what this transmission is capable of.
