I just brought up the fact that BMW does in fact supply an automatic again in the M3, though it's obviously of a relatively new design.
Except it is not called an automatic, not by BMW or by the vast majority of DCT owners. I would say the majority of those who call the DCT an automatic do not understand the difference and/or don't car about the difference to include the advantages of DCT over an automatic.

For me, I've used the D mode probably less than 30 miles of the 6000 I've put on my car so far.
