While we have no official confirmation, we have some pretty hard evidence that the DCT will be at least optional on the 135i for 2011. And before the questions start, yes the manual transmission will remain standard. We will classify this as a rumor for the time being but our sources are hard to refute for this particular bit of info. The dual clutch transmission will be the same 7 speed as featured in the Z4 and additional 3 Series models in the European market.
All told this is very exciting news to us. A 1 Series with launch control sounds good to our ears.
Look for more updates as we get them…
