im sure i can resell my dct once the manual tranny is in.
To be honest, if there are so few M3's available, I suspect the number of knowledgeable techs available to do this kind of work is probably also scarce. Given all the computer work you have to do on top of the mechanical, you need a very experienced shop on board to make this successful.
If you do it on your own, I hope you have a lot of time on your hands and can get in touch with some good techs outside of Indonesia to help (better be great at taking and sending pics! LOL).
You might find it more fruitful to experiment with different driving styles with the DCT to see if you can find a happy medium.
