Amen, brother. Not much reason for a purist to buy a 4300ish pound, $100,000, refined, elegant, twin-turbo, comfortable, luxurious, German status symbol. The DCT more suits the nature or the character of the car, if you see what I mean. Having an F10 M5 with a manual instead of DCT is like having a lawyer show up to court in jeans instead of a suit. You CAN do it, it just doesn't fit, it's not right somehow. On the other hand, a 1M or M3 would be more of the car you would WANT with a manual trans.
