I think its fair to say that the current M3 V8 was designed to be a better "fit" for a DCT than an MT. To allow a DCT to make near instant shifts it needs to be mated to a high revving, lightweight low inertia engine which will drop revs as quickly as possible on closed throttle....the MT instead would be easier to shift with a more traditional engine design.
