Will 09 M5 get DCT?

My girlfriends father is looking into an E60 M5.

He wants to know if 09 will get the DCT tranny vs the SMG tranny?
anyone know?

not until the the next generation. The DCT is not able to handle the m5/m6 yet but you will see a recised version in the new m5/6. I am just hoping to GOD that they still offer a 6 speed manual as a choice.

Now it can if you've had a software update. When the M5 orignally came out you could not turn the DSC completely off with a 6mt. This is one of the major complaints about the car, and one of the reasons people feel BMW really dropped the ball when they implemented the 6mt.

hahahah I drove that dct and im pretty much sold. I mean the 6mt felt amazing other then the tall shifter and non ssk it felt great. But the dct I didn't expect to like but once I drove it WoW is all I have left to say lol. Im left in awe because the SMG did not do that to me but the M DCT is just great. And its sad the m5 nd 6 won't be seeing it.
