I noticed that your location is Emeryville... If you went to BMW of SF on your first encounter (or both), I know that one of their 2012 models in stock last year was loaded and included both the PPK and PE. Can't recall if it had the DCT or not, though.
I did go to BMWSF. The exhaust looked like the standard one with gloss black rolled tips instead of the chrome straight cut tips on what I think is perf exhaust. Not sure if the car had PPK. Was the PPK car a Space Gray?
