No. Revmatching is certainl ythere if you want it, esp. in the "Faster" settings. If you depress the gaspedal while downshifting it is alot louder revmatching.

In S1, S2 and D1 etc it feels like an automatic or evenmore liek a computergame. But it is so controlled so in the faster settings with soem feedback you just end up lining it since it is such a perfekt feeling with always power to the ground without the slightest delay.

Thanks Gustav, for taking the time to make the very informative clip and sharing with us. Can we simply say that it feels like an automatic gearbox though obviously is shifting much faster?

Having driven both, which do you prefer? I have always had MT cars, but with this one, Im leaning towards the DKG to try it out.

I really liked the M3 manual but for some reason the M3 I had was a bit stiff, esp. from 1st to 2nd. But it was not annoying at all having 6-speed, I lived the car alot even with the manual gearbox.

yea, my only complain with the 6 speed was the clutch pedal is wayyyyyyyyy too soft. My E36 cluth pedal is very stiff, and I actually prefer that, and in the e92 m3 the soft clutch really annoyed me.
