    For some reason I went for the DCT in the M3, I thought why not try it, and beside I think the BMW 6 speed gearbox is a sloppy. They should just use porsches gearbox! But I really want to try driving an 1M

    lol@Sticky's comment in youtube. It's ok man, it is an automatic no matter how you put it, anything that doesn't have a clutch is an automatic. Torque converter or no. I love the DCT i would get that over the 6MT any day. $#@! the little extra fun, I like to have the best......

    Automobile Magazine does a video comparison of the 1M and M3 - Pokes fun at the M3 and Dual Clutch Transmissions

    This is designed to be a lighthearted video although as with much satire there is some truth to it. To be honest, the video is mildly amusing and we don't care all too much for the reviewer. Calling the DCT an automatic? Well, it isn't an automatic and some people prefer winning races and maximum performance to babbling about clutch peddles. Saying the 1M is what the M3 should be, is, well, insane. The M3 should be a parts bin M car sharing a motor with 135's? No thanks. Take the video with a grain of salt and as an attempt at humor.

    He can call dual clutch transmissions automatics all he wants.

    There is a big difference between manual, dual clutch, and automatic gearboxes.

    Anything that doesn't have a clutch is an automatic? So dual clutches, automatics, and CVT's are all the same thing?

    I take the guy more seriously if he didn't have a giant set of Phil Mickelson man-boobs.

    Well the concept of not using a clutch pedal is what we call an automatic. The car doing the work for you, that is the car moving the clutches for you. All we have to do is hit a paddle and the car does all the work for you (automation). That's what I mean bro. I see what you are trying to say though, from a technical point of view on how things work inside the trans.

    This:

    Besides automatics, there are also other types of automated transmissions such as continuous variable transmissions (CVTs) and semi-automatic transmissions, that free the driver from having to shift gears manually, by using the transmission's computer to change gear, if for example the driver were redlining the engine. Despite superficial similarity to other automated transmissions, automatic transmissions differ significantly in internal operation and driver's feel from semi-automatics and CVTs. An automatic uses a torque converter instead of clutch to manage the connection between the transmission gearing and the engine. In contrast, a CVT uses a belt or other torque transmission schema to allow an "infinite" number of gear ratios instead of a fixed number of gear ratios. A semi-automatic retains a clutch like a manual transmission, but controls the clutch through electrohydraulic means.

    We all know what the guy in the video is trying to say. He hates $#@!ing anything that doesn't have a clutch pedal, no matter how good the transmission is. He's stuck in that $#@!ing macho Jurassic park mentality. It boosts his ego knowing that he has to work way harder than other people just to try to go as fast, and probably the fact that a lot less females can drive MT's lol. The truth!
