I could live with the cheap interior and even the misaligned panels/poor paint jobs/essentially really shitty build quality. It was the blown motors, excessive oil usage, drivers side rear axle boots continuing to break spewing grease everywhere etc etc I couldn't.
I didn't experience any of the issues you mentioned.

I'm happy for you that you didn't. A lot of us did/do though and I did with two of them. I'd still be in my 17 if it wasn't on the way to another engine replacement like my 16 had due to excessive oil usage.

If ford and tremec can build a dct able to handle this type of torque on what I suppose is a longitudinal front engine platform, I am ashamed that bmw could not on the new m5 or the new upcoming m3 with what I assume is the zf 8.

For those of you that say the zf8 is as good as a dct, go drive a pdk on a porsche.

Im happy with the m4 dct. Not super far off pdk.
They were able to build a nice transmission on the ford gt, i would imagine they have some experience now.
My local ford dealer has an open allocation for a 19 gt350 hmmm

its a ford. Just look inside and feel the buttons and materials. Look at the resale value of older GT500s as well.

There is more to a car than performance.
