In the US yes, but he is in Wales. 335is was US-only, other countries had DCT as an option for the E92/E93 335i (both N54 and N55 versions). I have one with N55 and DCT.

Perhaps it wasn't clear but does your car have an aftermarket oil cooler guard (Fall Line or Turner Motorsport version)? It wouldn't have mattered because it hit your oil pan but I'm surprised the rock didn't damage your oil cooler as well if you had the oem plastic oil guard.

No I don't have an oil cooler guard or anything I was surprised too. But now I'm highly considering one lol

You know, well before I got my f80, I was reading non stop about them. it seemed oil cooler / oil pan damage was super common and adding plates/guards was highly recommended. Havent noticed any other instances of issues until this post since I have had mine. Maybe I will need to ask Santa for some guards this year

Also, I love the keychain! What is the effective dollar amount for that? lol

Yes, we've already established this, several days ago.

Sorry for my delayed reply... I've been quite busy.
The city just wanted pictures of the damage and a repair/replacement quote. Hopefully this helps!

Sure, but hitting a rock that big would damage any car really.

OP glad to hear there was not more damage than that.
