Question 6 MT Question

I have a 6MT Sedan en route and have followed the 6MT vs. DCT discussions with interest and amusement. Given that I have a lease expiring, waiting for DCT was not an option, nor was I that tempted after my experience with an SMG based E46 M3. Time will tell whether I should have waited.

My last two sports cars have been Porsches; a 911 and Cayman S. It is very common in the Porsche world to upgarde to an after-market shifter, typically a B&M. Given the concerns I have read among those who fear that the new 6MT may be too "rubbery" I am curious why I have not read a lot about people going aftermarket. Are there no good alternatives? Is there a reason why this is less common among M3 owners? I may be misreading the situation but it just appears much less common and am curious as to why. Any thoughts?
