I think yes. Seeing as the F10 is going to run the
same 6 speed the manual cars have now, the swap may be easier than we think.
I'd say the only thing that might make it a little difficult
is if the bellhousing design is different. The last thing
would just be software. That might be an easy reprogram
of the TCM from the F10 to work with an E60 or even just
a reprogram of the stock TCM to work with the tranny.

I like the DCT :)
Do you guys think a F10 DCT retrofit into the E60 may be possible in the future?
I have heard that Karl Otto Noelle has been doing some prototype DCT's in E60 M5's. You might want to call Dinan to see if this is something they could do for you.

Well, I don't care for it right now but when my SMG goes it may be a nice idea

I am thinking that my M will last a while, it's built well. Only knock on it is the SMG. Well, when that goes, it'd make sense to go with something better. The DCT will be nice, actually I think it may just make the E60 M the perfect 4-door sedan.

How is DCT better than SMG?

My SMG shifts lightening fast....even though the car is impossible to drive in "D" mode (I'm always shifting gears)
The shifts are going to be much much smoother and just as lightening fast. You
probably won't even notice it shift when driving in "D" mode.
Most notable is that the DCT will more than likely
be much more reliable than the SMG tranny. The M3 DCT
unit seems to be very reliable, so I expect the M5 DCT
to be the same.
