I just supercharged my 2008 e92 m3 and I got smoked by a dct e90 m3 with same power. I was not in the right gear from a 60 roll but he got me pretty good. 3rd instead of 2nd. So if speed is all u care about then dct. Driving the cars before super charging I liked manual more. Manual is more fun day to day I think .

I have a manual m3 and a dct m5.... while of course it isn't possible to out shift a DCT, regardless of it being faster, it does take away that connected-ness to the car. My m5 is fast as shit stock, but it isn't always about being faster in my opinion. It's about the overall experience and with a manual in the e9x m3, the feeling of being one with the car can not be beat. Not to mention if I had DCT in the M3, I'd be having issues with it holding the power having twin turbo's. I'm running stock clutch and tranny as it is with almost 500lbs of torque and it handles it with no problems.

Love mine with DCT, I had a 3-pedal before but nothing feels better than knowing you will always be faster than a 6mt.

Well I prefer the MT when I'm at the Ring, Spa and Suzuka...DCT when I'm racing rice rocket guys in the hood, DCT at the beach fighting off the women, MT when blasting through tunnels and overpasses, DCT on the Autobahn, MT in Africa and Asia...
That's all I have to say about that...
