V3 and DKG gearbox

I was at the dealer yesterday since i have plans to change my 335 to a new one.
I was looking at the new auto gearbox with dubbelclutch.
There are 2 options with the DKG, one light version and one with M-drive which includes throttle when downshifting , launch control, 6 driving programs etc. There are a 1K price difference between the two versions.
I am planning to go all the way in mods, V3,ic,dp etc.
But will it work ? since the new futures includes launchcontrol and driving programs, I guess it is intercepting the throttle signal, the same as V3 it might cause a big mess , and perhaps it won’t work together, does anyone have a clue

Edit The M-drive version was not availible fro the 335, sorry my mistake

You should be fine as I see no reason why it wouldn't respond similar to the 6MT (albeit quicker shifts).

I'm planning on getting the DCT 7-speed tranny if offered in the U.S. for MY '10 so this would be very good to know. Shiv...

There should be no compatibility issues at all with either transmission. The PROcede only taps into the TPS signal, it doesn't intercept or modify it in anyway way. If there are any unique tuning requirements with either DKG geargboxes, we'll just post up new versions of the maps for DKG users to upload. But I don't see there being any issues whatsoever.

What about the torque limits of the DCT itself?

I remember knowing that the DCT can't handle more than 370rwtq(im not sure on value but it's not over 400)?

Anyone thought about this yet?
