Yep and the 6AT is geared really well for the 400+ RWHP 335i's that are runnings 11's and traping over 118 MPH. 6000RPM = 113 MPH, 6250RPM = 118 MPH and 6500RPM = 123MPH.
And once people start trapping over 125MPH the 6MT will really shine 6000RPM = 122 MPH, 6250RPM = 127 MPH, 6500RPM = 132 MPH
5500RPM - 6500RPM seems to be the sweet spot in the RPM range.
