Thanks for the warm welcome guys!

Just gone through the classifieds section. Wow! I didn't know there were a lot of e90 M3's for sale here. To DCT or not to DCT, that is the question.

Drove a friend's e92 m3 (6 speed) and boy, it was fast. I have been reading about the DCT and you could actually do a step down method of downshifting. That got me curious.

I'll try to go for a DCT test drive sometime this week.

Drove a friend's e92 m3 (6 speed) and boy, it was fast. I have been reading about the DCT and you could actually do a step down method of downshifting = FUN!!!. That got me curious.

Can't go wrong with either.

Sup? I think you were looking for the STI forums and accidentally landed here! J/k

Welcome. Go with 6m if you are not planning to track much. Its far better to be engaged with the car. DCT is no doubt faster and amazing but it is basically an automatic at the end of the day.

Good call on the sedan also!!

Good luck with your search, but don'e spend too much of your time looking for a 2012 E90 M3, production for the E90 ended with model year 2011. I have a 6MT, but man when I watch DCT videos I do get a little jealous... haha...

No EVO and STi for me. They both have too much of a boy-racer look. IMHO, M3's are for matured drivers who wants a sporty car, but do not want to miss out on luxury. It's also a lot more elegant when compared to the EVO and STi. I plan to take the M3 beast to it's stomping grounds twice a month, so I'm still stuck on which tranny to choose. IMHO, the sedan is much more aggressive looking than the coupe. I want one in AW or SG please.

Yes, you are right. The e90 M3 stopped production last year, the latest of the bunch being an 2011.5.

I have driven manual ever since I started driving in highschool, so DCT is VERY NEW to me. We'll see how the test drive goes.

Again, I want to say to all of you guys who posted: THANK YOU FOR THE WARM WELCOME!
