Thats modern BMW economics ... like the M Performance Automobiles - where the buyers get realistic very less more (mostly image!) for an much, much higher price.
You know, with an overall take rate of the M-DCT of some 70 percent you make more money with 70 percent paying the DCT premium than with 30 percent (MT buyers) not paying less.

It's also a hypothetical question as we're fairly sure there will be an MT for the next M3/4.
