Went from 435d ZF to M4 DCT. DCT is pants in comparison for 95% of the time. Not really sure the 5% is worth it to be honest.

New M5 is ZF, but then it has 4WD and ZF cater for this; not sure Magna (formerly Getrag) make a DCT that can drive all 4 wheels. New M3/4 will also be ZF in auto form as they too will be 4WD.

ZF8HP is a fantastic piece of engineering. And even better when installed in a BMW - other cars suffer with less sorted software, despite sharing the same hardware.
