I had DCT on my previous M3, so I went 6MT with my M2. As a daily, DCT would've been a better choice for convenience but I absolutely love the 6MT interaction. I would say it is close to a short-shifter as compared to a few other cars I've driven (haven't driven a GT4 but have driven a regular Carrera S). The M2 shifts are very notchy and feel great.

Yes, the exhaust note and overall characteristics change quite a bit in Sport+, louder and more burbles. I added the MPE, so the sound is turned up to a 10 (almost comically loud burbles).

One thing that surprised me with the 6MT is how short 1st gear is. I almost want to start in 2nd gear every time, so I'm also interested to hear a few DCT owner reviews that have come from the F8x generation M's.

If this were my decision, especially for the wife, I would go DCT.
