If we replace the 135 E88 dct with an M235 vert, it'll be the automatic. Given the choice, I'd prefer the dct over the ZF-8A, but I doubt the dct will be offered.
For the M235 coupe or hopefully the M2 GC, that'd be the MT6. My fear is that even the M2 will have the EPS, which hasn't thrilled me on either the F30 or the E89 I have driven.
By 2015 there may be nothing but EPS available. I'll get over it, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
