The E92 has a ZF 6-speed automatic. That is also not a bad automatic transmission (I have one in my E60), but apparently the 8 speed is a notable improvement, especially with the sport option.

I agree, it would be fun if the 435 were to come with the dual clutch that they use in the M3. It would be a way BMW could differentiate the 4 from the 3, but they chose not to go that way. Unfortunate since the Audi S5 does use a dual clutch automated manual. Then again so does the S4.

Still, nobody seems to be complaining about the ZF8.
