The E9x M3 is generally pretty reliable. No major issues like HPFP with the regular E9x cars. It's a great daily driver, except for the issue you mention below (gas).

I hear S65 loves the gas pump, but how bad is it really?
It's bad. Really bad. Like 10 MPG bad.

Of course this depends on your driving pattern and some people get around 20 MPG if they drive mostly highway.

Also DCT vs Manual...have never driven DCT, would this be a hard thing to adjust to coming from a 6spd?
It wouldn't be hard to adjust to, but this mainly comes down to what you want. I'd suggest driving a DCT car before deciding.
