The DCT in the Z4 is lazy on downshifts (particularly when in a corner), even in sport+ / manual mode (compared to other dual clutch gearboxes like Porsche PDK). I agree with other posters that the M gearbox has much better software for sport driving.

That said, it I think the DCT is a great gearbox (much better than traditional slushbox) and shifts more cleanly / consistently than I could with a manual (my car is DCT).
