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.
I couldn't agree with you more. My Evo X MR (DCT) allowed me to focus more on my braking and entry and I didn't have to spare any of my attention on shifting. But being that I was about to start a family and my track / canyon days were going to be significantly reduced, I went for a 6MT to keep me entertained on those short, lower speed commutes.
