I was very anti flappys paddles and was actively looking for a nice e90 with three pedals when a friend twisted my arm into taking his DCT equipped e90 on a country drive. I bought a DCT car a couple weeks later.
I'm still a big manual transmission fan, but I suddenly understood what people were talking about when they said how great DCT is in this car. It suits it perfectly. If I were buying a 911 I'd be shopping for a manual transmission. But this motor feels to me like it belongs with the DCT.
