Mein Auto: Soon to be M3
0-60 question

Do anyone knows if the quoted 0-60 times for the m3 DCT are only achieved using launch control or just stomping on the gas? Just curious...

Motor Trend claimed they got 4.1 secs with an MT.

I assume DCT with launch control has to be faster. BMW claims I believe a 0.1 second difference between MT and DCT.

They talk about the top 10 launch control cars including the M3.
