This car is superb regardless of the transmission.
I am 44 and my left leg is larger than my right from 28 years of driving a MT in traffic. Around Chicago, you can't avoid traffic anymore.
My DD has never been an automatic. Had them in the garage, but not my DD.
I enjoy everything about the DCT in my M3. For a small sports car, I would still get a MT.
