2008 BMW M3 Convertible

The 2008 BMW M3 convertible boasts an M DCT transmission that “works like the dual-clutch gearboxes in the Nissan GT-R, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR and Volkswagen R32.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

But BMW’s transmission is as smooth as a real automatic in city traffic, and with five settings for shift speed available in “D,” the transition from one gear to another doesn’t have to be aggressive unless you want it to be.
