or just the 6AT? Not sure if they already will introduce the 8AT in the current 3-series. The 6AT and DCT are already used and can handle the power... To be honest, when reading the reviews, I am not sure if the DCT would be an option compared to a 8AT. The 8AT seems to be really good, and be the successor in of the DCT for non M cars in the new models.
