Auto only, what's your pick? M3 or C63?

If you only get to drive the car in auto, which car would you pick?

If you want an automatic and 4-doors get the C63.

The DCT isn't technically an automatic.

Right now, the C63 in a heartbeat. In a year or so (when BMW has had a chance to work the bugs out of their auto), it's a tossup.

yes because the m3's powerdome and hoodscoops everywhere with quad exhausts are very subtle

I hope they never put an auto in the M3. The last one was in the E36 sedan I believe.

From a driver's perspective, the current M3 auto is indistinguishable from any other automatic - except they haven't gotten all the bugs out yet.

I totally disagree, the DCT does not feel like any automatic I have driven. If you don't notice a difference then in my opinion you are not "tuned" to the car. With DCT you can feel the clutch engage and disengage. With DCT once in motion the transmission does not slip like in a automatic. No automatic provides engine braking while coasting like DCT (because most automatics will disengage the torque converter under coasting).

All reasons why DCT is better than an automatic IMHO.

I'm not sure what bugs you're talking about, but the only one my car has is the track downshifting issue, which is going to be fixed in two weeks with a software update. I have no issues on the street.

I have to ask if you've driven DCT for more than 10 miles because there is a significant difference. The only similarities between an automatic and DCT is the lack of a clutch pedal.

Should also post this on an MB forum. That way it would be fair.

I'm sorry but this is a stupid question when asked in a M3 forum. Most members have an M3 or want to have it, so the answer is pretty obvious.

Absolutely not. You can really tell this thing has a regular clutch and no torque converter. Have you actually driven the M-DCT?
