E30 - it started it all. Without it, the others would not be.

Could be worse than 6MT v DCT debate - namely the even more dreaded 335i vs M3 thread.... (what - no voting option for 335i along with E30, 36, 46, 9x M3??? - lol)

I've owned an e36, e46 & now an e92 and I love all of them and each car has its great points, but my e92/DCT hands down owns all of em.

If the E9x M3 were about 250lbs lighter there would be no debate!

Lol true. But i would argue some do and some come real close. But they are not conplaining about the lack if power or how heavy it is.

I can honestly say that I find myself kinda sorta wishing I had a dct e92. Then I snap out of it and realize although the dct may be a bit quicker all around, I wouldnt trade my 6 speed ever. I just love the feeling of being in absolute control.

Back on the MAIN POINT though; I voted for the e92 m3 6 speed mainly because thats what I own and I love it. But I do plan on getting an e46 to play around with

From all the ones I have owned, all except the E30M. The E36M manual is the best.

I still think the E86 M Coupe is right up there with the E9X M3. Way ahead of the others.

You're driving the wrong car, there are many cars that are faster than an M3. Most people own an M3 for the emotional response they get from it. DCT is an automatic transmission. I consider a manual transmission on my car like foreplay with my woman, sure we can get straight to it but just like DCT it would become redundant..

Everyone knows DCT does make faster shifts but its not as fun..

E30 M3 by far. My best buddy has this with less than 50k on the odometer. He could easily probably get $30k for it. When he has had it running, it is a freaking beast. It is light, nimble, and will throw out some serious G forces.
