My opinion that any extra torque on M3 would be lost in silly wheel spin, and throttle control would be even more difficult.
I am with you on this one. There is a group of us that get together (about 10-12 cars usually) and go on nice spirited runs through the country and there is one thing I notice all the time on those runs.....the DCT M3 always seem to be putting down the right amount of power coming out of a slow tight turn. 2nd gear, mash the long pedal and it just hooks (I have 295 rears on my car). I had to be so overly cautious with my former C6 Vettes as the ass end would come around so damn fast. I find the torque in the DCT fitted M3's to be just fine to my liking. Not so much in the 6MT....there is a considerable difference to me in the two.
