E90 vs e92 dct vs 6mt

Ok long story short, I'm a few hours from going to trade my e92 m3 for another used one.. I currently have 80k on my 09 that's why.. I know I drive alot. Lol

But my question is what should I get? There's 3 options.. Another 09 e92 with dct that's fully loaded. Or awfully loaded e90 6mt. Or a base model (no nav, etc) e92 6mt?

The fully loaded e 92 cost 49k with 15k miles

The base model e92 cost 49k with 15k miles

And the e90 6mt cost 44k with 29k miles...

What's not to understand? It's pretty simple.

Ii have a dct right now. It's a two door. But I may be interested I something new. I guess the question really is, what do u guys think of the e90? And what do u guys think of the 6 mt?

All my cars I've ever owned have been manual. But my current car is dct. And I must admit that tranny shifts faster than a 6mt and it's fun. But than again the manual trams gives you the real driving Experiance.

Personally, I would go for the DCT. That's what I did. I was considering the 6MT but I found after a 30 min test drive of the 6MT my right hand was too tired to jerk off. I tried my left but it just didn't feel the same. With the DCT you only have to worry about wearing out your middle fingers, and quite candidly that's her problem and not mine.
Seriously though Fully Loaded DCT<Stripper 6MT DCT is awesome if both cars were equipped similarly then I could see where there may be a choice to be made.

Sedan is Hawwwwwt but no carbon roof. All about personal preference, and what you need from your car. I had a E90 335 and every time I saw a E92 I regretted my decision, so I got the E92 335 and then every time I saw a E92 M3 I regretted my decision so I got a E92 M3. Lesson I learned is get EXACTLY what you want the 1st time!!!

By and large people don't know what they want. They want to be told what they want based on public opinion, social approval, others' perception, etc.

I think sometimes when we don't know what we want posting is just a way to "put it down on paper". I don't think anyone actually expects someone else to choose for them. I'm looking to purchase and after multiple test drives still can't decide DCT or manual.

Let's see some pics of the new car when you get back. I personally like the E90 DCT best. Just a matter of taste.

E90 DCT here and love it. More practical for me. However, if I were single, or married and now kids, or didn't want kids...E92.
