The 7 speed DCT gear box is the future which is why it was put in the new M5 and M6! No one needs a car with 8 gears, 7 is enough.
Not only is 8 speeds too many (why not just make 7th longer...?) but who in their right mind would choose the 8 speed auto with a torque converter (as good as that transmission is) over a dual clutch gearbox?
