Thanks,
You can actually place your order already as the kit/price is available on their website.

Have you seen how expensive they are and what kind of work is required to install them?

ps. the 7DCT on my 135 is slipping with the stock turbo

I heard 2500 + labor... Ouch! Even then, the DCT N54 will destroy equal 6AT and MT N54s with less power due to the shift speeds.

Gotta pay to play. No matter what transmission you have it needs to be upgraded to handle the power. If one can't afford it don't do it.

I'm not looking forward to that 4k tranny rebuild when that time comes.

on top of the pricing difference (3-4k to upgrade dct opposed to 800-1200 for a good clutch/flywheel setup in a MT) the clutch pack upgrades i've read about so far have mixed reviews.

Okay but when that DCT is upgraded it's bye bye MT. DCT are beating MT's that are making more power even. Talk to some M3 guys that are supercharged. Also I had a 1995 maxima 5MT that I turbocharged with a big single that was making about 500 torque to the wheels. I was going through stage 3 race clutches like no tomorrow (good ole days at englishtown raceway ) So no matter what transmission you have, you gotta pay to play.

The first DCT upgrade is being done by SSP.

And has yet to hit the road. So there are no reviews.

Personally, I would go with someone who isn't known for putting washers in the tranny as an upgrade.
