I could care less about 0-60, 1/4 mile times. Same driver, around a road course, the DCT will always be faster.
That is the sole reason I got the DCT. My track-prepped E36 M3 is manual, and I enjoy rev-matching downshifts as much as the next guy. I simply wanted to go as fast as I could in the E92, and that's with the DCT of course.
