Dct or 6mt for precvious e46 SMG owners

Just wanted to see where previous Smg owners stood on this debate that has been discussed ad nauseam.
I personally owned an SMG e46 and after about 2 years I really started missing a 6mt. That being said I did enjoy the SMG during spirited driving in the canyons or on the track. Wish I could have both!
I recently sold it and decided that my 2011.75 M3 (Euro Delivery in 10 days!) would be a 6mt.
Anyone feel the same and go from SMG back to 6mt? Thoughts?

I owned a 2003.5 SMG M3. At the time, I thought it was way better than a 6MT. Having come from E36 M3 I love to row gears and rev match, and having driven a 6MT E46 M3, I felt the SMG was superior.... as for the E92 M3? Well I love the DCT. Drove one fairly extensively. The rev matching is better than on the E46 M3, and cost to repair the DCT, along with free revving engine, I would prefer the 6MT on E92.

Had the SMG on my previous M3, went for a 6mt for my e92 and I love it. No doubt if there was the DCT when I ordered my car (summer 07) I wouldn't have thought twice but I had no choice.
