The M3 clutch sucks. It's way too soft for no reason (E36 M3 clutch was perfect, don't know why they have to ruin it by making it no feel soft), the 1st to 2nd shift is just very difficult to execute fast and smooth, certainly not like any Porsche GT cars, the E30, or the E36 M3.

The E9x M3 manual transmission would have been perfect had they kept the smoothness and the clutch feel of the E36 M3.
Agreed. This issue is the main reason I went back to the DCT on my e93. I like the clutch/shifter better on the e46m3 and my son's 135i. The vagueness of the clutch was also present in my e39 540i years ago. BMW seems to do this on their v8 manual cars.
