The M-DCT will be ~8 years old (according to the press release, we went see the F80/F82 until 2016) so you need to think a little harder if you don't think there will be a better option out there.
E46 had the SMG II --> E60 gets SMG III --> E90 gets M-DCT --> F10 gets M-DCT
It's only natural the next M3 will get a new gearbox, that rips out faster shifts, is lighter & yields more HP from the flywheel to the wheels.
Yeah, M-DCT will be a little old, but what is better?
