Because it's fun to rehash something that's been beaten to death over and over again

Cars driven by your grandma.
funny thing is that its because these companies that offer DCT only do it because they know that potential customers are all GRANDPAS and GRANDMAS lol.

Changing gear is a vital form of self-expression, which I would feel I am being denied with a DCT.

It all comes down to the experience and to preference.

Some people prefer to roll their own. I prefer to row my own.

You do realize that you can throttle blip downshifts with manual as well right? Its way more rewarding when you get them perfectly matched. I kind of relate it to playing a game on easy or hard. you will look like a god on easy but then again your mom can hop in and do the exact same!

Your right but similar concept to drag race - max acceleration, straight line, WOT and quickest possible shifts favors DCT - other than that I'll take a 6MT every time.

A friend of mine really wants DCT, but he told me he can't get the hang of it. He's really tried to learn, but he says he just doesn't have the skills. So he's stuck with a lowly MT like his gran'mammy and gran'pappy.

He brakes like Mad Max. He goes directly from 6th WOT to reverse WOT and roasts the tires backwards to slow the car down.

As an e93 owner, I felt DCT was a better overall fit for the car.

Also never felt the M3 6mt was anything special. It felt rubbery to me.

Now shifting a Porsche 6mt is .

The e93 M3 is not a real M3, it barely has enough torque to move its weight
, it's more like an SAV so the automatic is perfect for it.
