    Thoughts on M3 with M-DCT?

    I'm thinking of trading in my '11 335xi for a CPO M3 with M-DCT (2008 and newer).

    Anyone with any thoughts? Seems like a no-brainer, but would like to hear if anyone has an opinion (positive or negative).

    Love the N54 335, but the M-DCT seems really amazing, and the Limited Slip Diff and other M features seem really attractive....

    I have James Duerbeck (BMW of Fairfax) looking into this for me, will hopefully find a suitable car shortly.

    Thanks!

    If iDrive makes a difference, go 2009+ since it has iDrive II.

    Just picked up the 2012 M3 from BMW of Fairfax (James Duerbeck). Proceeded to sit in Beltway traffic, the new DCT trans hunting in auto mode for the right gear! It's definitely going to take some getting used to! That said, the handling is, even on the beltway, noticeably different (read: better) than anything I have ever driven before. And that's in the lowest mode/settings!

    This car will definitely be a blast!
