2009 BMW 135i - Click above for updated high-res image gallery
The BMW obsessives at Bimmerfile supposedly have it on good authority that the 2011 BMW 1 Series
will be available with the same seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox fitted to the current Z4
and a handful of Euro-only models.
Although a six-speed manual will still be available, the proliferation of BMW's DCT throughout its line up -- including the 335i
-- makes adding the Getrag-source dual-clutch 'box to the 1 series a no-brainer. Specifically, it should be fitted to the updated 135i when it arrives later this year, which means launch control on BMW's smallest offering is just a few months away.
