Mein Auto: BMW 328i
BMW 328i manual

I recently got 2013 328i with manual option. I love the car but I am wondering, am I missing out on not considering a dual clutch model, say 335 is? I have never driven a DCT so not sure how much the driving experience differs. I don't drive in too heavy a traffic so the manual doesn't bother me in that regard.

I am still learning to shift smoothly as I am coming from a Japanese manual car, which had a shorter clutch I feel like. Regardless, I love the BMW, feels great driving one. Now I just need to find some nice windy roads around here :/

The DCT will out-shift a normal human any day. I have not driven the BMW DCT but had the pleasure to drive Prosche's PDK. They are incredible transmissions. Given the choice between the MT or DCT I would pick the MT just because I enjoy driving it. However, I realize that the DCT is far superior to any shifting I could ever do. Shifts are instantaneous and perfectly rev matched; something, I cannot deliver on a consistent basis.
