The ultimate question for the modern BMW enthusiast; manual or DCT? That ‘s the question we get asked from readers more than any other these days. With the dual clutch DCT not only faster than the manual but also more efficient, it ‘s hard to make a case for rowing your own gears without being a bit sentimental. But that ‘s exactly what we are here at BF. We appreciate the satisfaction that comes with blipping the throttle and matching revs and the feedback and control you get with a properly sorted manual gearbox. But we ‘re not going to rehash the debate right now. That ‘s for you to do in the comment section. Instead we ‘re just going to give you a platform to tell us what you prefer.
