It's just different driving a E93, depending on what you use the car for, it's hard to say whether it's better or worse. The DCT function itself won't be different. But you can feel a +400 lb difference of the E93, and the turn-ins feel very different. The car doesn't "feel" slower however.

I would say the extra weight and turn-in and the wind blowing through your hair are the 3 biggest differences you can observe immediately, hence I believe you should drive the E93 DCT to get the exact feel of the car.

If one of these 3 difference really bothers you, then I would seriously reconsider buying a E92 in lieu of a E93.
