That said, a tuned GTI with DSG could probably walk me to 30.

My next M will likely be DCT, but not because I want it to be...for now, I'll keep rowing!

To each his own.
Agreed, it is an automated transmission. The difference however does lie on how it goes about executing that mission. I would not consider a ZF8 or SMG.

My specific point was that DCT cannot be compared to a standard torque converter automatic .

IMO, at legal speeds in NA, you cannot really enjoy the performance of the M3
