I'm wondering if it thickens as it breaks in... maybe the stitching is really tight at first or something... or MAYBE DCT gets a thinner wheel than 6MT?

as for the DCT, it's pretty cool. I'm going back on forth on trying to figure out if I should get a 2012 E92 or just keep my car and wait to see what's in store 6-12 months from now. I'll keep you posted.
Thicker steering wheel, but the 08 is substantially slower than the 011 with ZCP
