If BMW can justify that the 8AT is quicker shifting and lighter than a DCT then fair enough, otherwise it's a cost decision. M3/ M4 cars (well, previous gen cars, don't know about the G80) are lighter than the competition. Doesn't seem to be true for the X series M's though.

Don't know what will differentiate the G80/ G82 (apart from the grille) engineering wise. The days of ///M management and engineers having a laugh about the competition are long gone - equivalent AMG and RS models are excellent choices for anyone.
