UPDATE:

Since i made this thread i looked at few different cars. One was a 2013 GT500 , never got to test drive one. But i found a lot of dealerships were selling them overpriced or didn't want to trade my dealership for the car. i realized car is kind of hard to get without ordering what you want. I did find one that was priced well and located in Ohio which was not to far. but sold the day i called them .

I wasn't set on a GT500 but wanted to see what was going on with prices. Nothing really worked out in my favor and decided to pass on the stang. I also HATED the interior, but i am sure the power and noise would make up for it.

I went to my local BMW dealership last week to talk about M3. Also did not go well, as I could not find a manual transmission with the packages i wanted plus color. But found there were a lot more with DCT that could possible be traded for. Since they had a M3 on the lot, it would make a trade easier. I then went home for a fews days did little research on DCT.

Went back and test drove the DCT, found it was quite enjoyable. Keeping in mind this was my first time driving a m3. My thoughts were classy, sporty and quality build. Fell in love.

Although i had mixed feeling about the DCT and it becoming rather boring as time went on. I also was not looking forward to ordering and having to wait. If this was not a DCT i probably would have needed a manual. But i put a 1,000 deposit down and made a arrangement/agreement for the dealership to find me a car i wanted. They found a few dealerships had them in the color i would prefer. I am hoping i hear good new today, but worse case i will take the one they have on there lot.

good forward to having a M3 this week.

Buy a M4 and swap the engine out for the S65. Best of both worlds

Thread resurrected. The M4 didn't exist when he wrote that.

Looks like he has the M3 now and I'm willing to bet he loves the DCT.
