The fact that you made this post tells me you are thinking about this issue after owning both gearboxes. Please shed some light on the matter because I sold a 6MT and ordered a DCT for ED in November!
I am doing the same as I am trading my 6MT for a DCT. I have the DCT on order for PCD in October. I like the 6MT don't get me wrong, this is my 3rd 6MT equipped BMW, but it's time for a change. I want the DCT for the track and I am sick of dealing with the 6MT in stop and go traffic on my daily commute.
