The Z4 DCT does match revs and is a fast and very good auto. But the upshifting and the downshifting aren't comparable to the M3 DKG with Drivelogic. The M3 DKG manual upshifts are faster and more "brutal" than the Z4 ones and the dowshifts are faster and more involving too. For example the M3 can drop from 6 to 3 in 1 sec more or less, simply tapping three times in a very rapid sequence. And you CAN HEAR EVERY SINGLE GEAR downshifted (a sort of zum-zum-zum !). In the Z4 you can NOT hear it so clearly. All this is due to a better software in the M3 DKG, to the fantastic intake sound of the V8 and to its natural attitude to rev high.
