Wish the 35is gave you the option for the 6 speed manual.
Having owned a DCT E92 M and a 35i Z (not IS), it seems to be just as fast but the paddle shifters are definitely different. However, the M does have M Mode and the Z doesn't so I would think the gearing and programming would be different for those different situations but what do I know.

Hmm..I wanted to chime in but I guess I wasn't too helpful. haha
