Isn't DCT a more expensive option that STEP? I think marketing probably decides that most every day drivers don't need this.
Most everyday drivers don't need a BMW. Unfortunately for whatever marketing dweeb at BMW may have made that decision (should it prove to be so) to make DCT available on 335i coupes/cabrios everywhere else in the world but North America, many, many potential US/NA BMW buyers know the difference between DCT and the obsolete stuff they'll be foisting on us in '09. While I'm not particularly a nationalist, I can also understand if many of them are PO'd just on principle.
