Its amazing how someone's opinion changes AFTER they get one.......

No doubt DCT, PDK et al are faster and the way of the future, at this point given the option I like the involvement of the third pedal and that driving experience. I can see how someone your age would opt for the auto though!
It all started after having transmission issues on my 08 and my wife getting her 335is with the DCT that changed my views and 95% of the time I am glad that I did make the change.On the track there is no question that the M-DCT is the better way to go as the ratio spread is much better than the 6 speed box and with an engine that produces its real power in the last 10% of the available rev range this is a real performance gain.
