Ceramic controls

Why do you think ceramic controls aren't available on the M5 and M6 (at least in the USA). As far as I'm concerned, they should be standard.

I don't think they've designed a ceramic DCT shift knob. That's probably the only holdup.

Good point, but at least we should get the knobs.

I think they raise the center of gravity and severely degrade handling.

I was told Individual can do this. I think they did it on Sebastian Vettel's M5.
