BMW M GmbH is proud to be the world's first car maker now offering a seven-speed Double Clutch Gearbox specially conceived and designed for a high-speed power unit. Compared with all conventional systems available so far, this new gearbox ensures an optimum gearshift and even more dynamic acceleration, and at the same time reduces fuel consumption by a signi- ficant margin.

The world's first Double Clutch Gearbox conceived and developed for a
high-speed power unit; gearshift without interruption of power and traction;
gearshift management with M-specific configuration; seven gears for optimum
gear increments ensuring particularly dynamic acceleration; simultaneous debut
in the BMW M3 Coupé, BMW M3 Saloon,
and BMW M3 Convertible.

Drivelogic with eleven electronically controlled driving programs in
M-specific set-up; five shift programs in the automatic mode, six shift
programs in the manual mode including Launch Control for maximum acceleration
from a standstill; efficiency-enhancing transmission control in the automatic
mode; sequential gear selection in the manual mode.

Fourth, consistently enhanced generation of the automated manual gearbox in
M-specific configuration; further enhancement of the car's dynamic driving
characteristics and the motorsport-oriented driving experience; manual gear
selection by sports selector lever or via paddles on the steering wheel; both
control elements in M-specific configuration and set-up; Shift Lights.

Perfect interaction of the M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic
and the V8 power unit in the new BMW M3; measurable and tangible improvement of
acceleration; optional sporting downshift performance with int-between gas.

Elaborate cooling of transmission fluid as the prerequisite for absolute
reliability and endurance of the Double Clutch Gearbox with Drivelogic even on
the race track, when subject to extreme loads and high outside temperatures.

Optimised comfort in driving manoeuvres at very low speed ensured by Low Speed
Assistant; automatic activation of parking lock after switching off the engine.

Further reduction of fuel consumption and emissions compared
with manual gearshift and a conventional converter-type automatic transmission.
