I've read so many bad reviews on having a manual in the 2013 F10. Is the auto really that much better?

I have a 2013 550i with manual transmission. Completely problem free. Love it!

Leasing it, so soon to trade it for a 2016 M5 6MT -- the last?

I have a 2016 M5 with DCT. The shifting is seamless and quick. I can understand if as a purist you would want a manual but with the DCT option you'd be hard pressed to out shift it.
