Personal preference. Ideally 1 of each! When I had my manual, I would find myself wishing for an auto or DCT when in traffic. However, I also had a 911 PDK and found it boring and wished it were a manual. Whichever you choose, there will probably be some point where you wish you had the other. My problem with the dual clutches is that they are almost too good that the gear changes are almost too smooth. When not aggressively driving and actively thinking about driving, I found myself forgetting to switch gears. After a while I just left the PDK in auto. Ultimately, how much traffic driving do you do? Do you like to rev match and heel toe? Do you take to track? Great when your problem is deciding which transmission to get in your new M4 :)
