OP, I saw your other thread. Would I buy a whole other M3 so I could have both versions (6MT and DCT)? No. As you can see we ALL sometimes want a 6MT and sometimes want a DCT. My M3 is a DCT. It would have been a 6MT if I were selling my 330 6sp and wife weren't driving it (she can't drive stick and it would be too expensive to teach her).

I will guess that anyone who is a diehard DCT fanatic/6MT hater can't drive a manual. The rev-matched down shift on a DCT is OK...but a rev-matched downshift in a 6SP is FAR MORE SATISFYING! Especially when you smoothly slide the stick into the hole and then she screams, bouncing off the limiter through the corner!
