What year was your buddies car. My good friend has an 02' with SMG and I'm not a big fan. The shifts are pretty abrupt and harsh no matter what mode it's in. I've heard that later M3's with SMG II are significantly better but I've never sampled one of those.
I was on the fence and almost ordered M-DCT. Not having driven it before I went with the safe bet and got the manual. I guess we'll all see very shortly.
