If you're on the fence, go drive one and you'll soon join the supposed "dark side."
I think it would be stupid if BMW decided to ignore its potential customer base and stick with MTs because that's "pure". Your situation is a great example of this. But I hope that M continues to offer MT's.

The most important this is that I can talk on my phone, drink my Monster and drive all at the same time with DCT. Just kidding!
Actually, no. Its a PIA for drifting. Clutch kick? No. Only option is to give it a bootfull which, at least for a drifting noob, is not the best option.
