Thanks for the review. I have DCT on order and a build date of the first week of May. A bulletin came out this morning and there evidently is a shortage of DCTs and 19" wheels. I do not think I am affected as my build date was moved up a week as of this morning. We shall see.

I just turned 40 and I'm feeling beat up all the time. My right knee is shot to hell too, but it doesn't affect my driving as much. I'll probably a bit sad, but the m3 with dct will be a car that I can enjoy more comfortably more of the time too.

no clutch pedal

the DCT is classified as an automated manual transmission. In principle, the DCT behaves just like a standard manual transmission: It's got input and auxiliary shafts to house gears, synchronizers and a clutch. What it doesn't have is a clutch pedal, because computers, solenoids and hydraulics do the actual shifting. Even without a clutch pedal, the driver can still "tell" the computer when to take action through paddles, buttons or a gearshift.
Driver experience, then, is just one of the many advantages of a DCT. With upshifts taking a mere 8 milliseconds, many feel that the DCT offers the most dynamic acceleration of any vehicle on the market. It certainly offers smooth acceleration by eliminating the shift shock that accompanies gearshifts in manual transmissions and even some automatics. Best of all, it affords drivers the luxury of choosing whether they prefer to control the shifting or let the computer do all of the work.

Faster = yes
Smoother = depends on the mode you select, from smoother than automatic to "surgier" than automatic
