How to use DCT

Drivers have the choice.

One of the many advantages of the M DCT with Drivelogic is that it always finds the optimum drive connection. Gear changes are particularly quick yet remain comfortable without noticeable interruption of the vehicle’s traction. This replicates the feeling of a direct power connection drivers receive with manual transmissions. Gears shift automatically or manually via shift paddles on the steering wheel or the shift lever. The M DCT enables dynamic and fast acceleration and overtaking processes in both modes. The launch control also guarantees optimum acceleration from a standstill.

Race car driver, winner of the 24-hour Nürburgring, BMW instructor: Stefan Landmann stays on the ideal line. As a class winner in 2011 at the 24-hour Nürburgring on the notorious Nordschleife, the hot-blooded race car driver conquered one of the most demanding racetracks in the world in a BMW M3 GT4. As a certified BMW instructor, the 30-year-old Austrian is the right man in the right place when it comes to transferring the fascination of racing to the road. “It is a great pleasure for me to work with people who are as enthusiastic as I am,” says Landmann. “I like to pass on my motorsport experience.”
