Fyi, if you test drive a non-ZCP M3, I'd use EDC Normal since Sport isn't adaptive without ZCP and the firm end of Normal's operating range is actually firmer than the fixed Sport setting. DCT in S5 is pretty sweet, but you might find it a bit much, in fact some people run S4 even on the track because S5's shifts can be harsh enough to upset the car. And yes, MDM is a wonderful thing, just make sure you've got a feel for the car and ideally don't have any obstructions nearby.
