i do agree that the DCT is a much better match for the m3.
it just depends on what you like. and stock, even less so with an FMIC, the power does not completely die at 5000 RPM on the 1M at all. the car rips at all RPMs.
both great cars and similar in many ways, yet different in others. great to have choices
I've never driven a 1m but I a 335 with the same engine and became bored with it (the engine not the car) after the first few months. And even after all the modding, all the power gains, the engine simply bored me to death.
The engine in the m3 is truly a gem. Honestly one of a kind. I have an r8 v10 and I still marvel over the v8 in my m3.
