Maybe because there's no torque converter in the M3's DCT the 335is's automatic transmission can be a bit more comfortable. Otherwise M3>335is in every other way. Then it's all about cost as previously stated.

Why don't we start the MT vs DCT dialogue again? That could be fun.
Really? 4 pages on what's a better DD? Those with only 1 car have their decision made for them. Those with 3 cars can pick and choose according to the weather, need or whim. Never a final solution for this thread.

Now before people start chiming in on the subjectivity of what a good daily driver is lets just calm down and think about what we want in an everyday car. For me and probably most other people, it would be something that's comfortable, relatively cheap, spacious, good gas mileage, and good in bad weather. Essentially, its something that can handle the rigors of driving single day and can handle all the things life has to throw at us.

Sure everyone has different lifestyles and if you don't mind lower gas mileage, don't mind your 70k car getting bear up, and want a slightly faster car the M3 is better and more fun. But lets say I was super rich and could drive any car I wanted. I might choose to drive a 458 italia everyday to work. It might be better for me, but objectively it isn't a better DD than lets say a 335i. It might be my preference, which is subjective, but if you ask any reasonable person, which car is better to drive everyday, the 335i would win out.
Thank you.

You pretty much hit the nail on it's head.

By the numbers there are cheaper more efficient ways of getting from point A to B, primarily when your purpose is a commuter car.

Can you DD an M3, yes. Should you, that is up to you - it can be whatever you want it to be. DD, garage queen, weekend track car..etc.
