Don't get confused .... a DCT with paddle shifters cannot be compared to an auto with paddle shifter. DCT is in a league way better.

There were no manuals for sale when I was looking to buy. Was hesitant to buy the DCT even after a long test drive. After 2 years I'm happy with my decision.

I dont agree that all DCTs are better than all torque converter automatics (compare VAGs DQ200 to ZF 8HP45) but they have certainly come a long way.

The most compelling thing about good modern DCTs is that theres almost no perceptible let up of torque/power when it shifts.

That and the perfectly revmatched downshifts every time are kinda fun. Just pull the paddle and get the gear you want immediately, and at the right revs.

Don't use the paddles, just use the gearknob, all you miss is the clutch action.
Practice left foot braking if you feel you need to do something with that leg.

You wont miss the manual after you dust your first HSV / FPV / 1M
The DCT makes up for a lot of horsepower

Guys just a quick input on this thread.

Can we please stick to posting strictly to For sale items?

This thread is already 200 pages long and flipping through a whole page of convo is not really how it should go.

I think we should set a guideline

Post the following

- Item you are selling
- Price
- Location
- Reason for sale ( optional)
- Contact method - PM Or Phone number

Probably steer away from replying to their actual post to minimize spam because there is about 60 pages of just quoted text with no response...

Cheers guys!

Or the mods could give us a FS sub forum like the E90post guys get...

It's pretty ridiculous that we don't have one already seeing as we probably outnumber them anyway.

On Feb 17, I sent the following to moderator Mark:

---------------
*Classifieds page format*

Hi Mark,

1addicts is great - congrats! I was wondering if it's possible to have a classifieds page like the US pages? This is like a table of items for sale (with a column for price) and has a thread for each item, rather than a single thread or discussion for everything. Would it be possible to take that table format, and use it for our classifieds?

Thanks and regards,
James

Hi all,

I'm selling my beloved 1 Series Coupe as I have recently upgraded to the 4 Series and am about to take delivery at the end of the month.

My 125i is currently priced at $42,000 but that is negotiable. For reference, I live in Queensland.

Further information, including contact details, can be found at the link below:

http://www.carsales.com.au/private/d...SSE-AD-2671465

Thanks for looking and happy selling everyone!
