Other car I considered was an M4, with examples kicking around the same price. I appreciate there is massive rivalry between the 2 models, so expect I'll keep the M2 for about 6 months then chop it for an M3/4, for a direct comparison. We had an M135i in the family a few years ago, and we absolutely loved it. That had the 8 speed single clutch gearbox, which suited the car really well. What can we expect from the 7 speed DCT in terms of everyday use and performance when pushing on?
