I have no doubt that it's probably nice to have the option of putting the transmission into automatic mode in heavy traffic, but for me, the idea of an M3 without a clutch pedal is a real turn off. I live where I can avoid most traffic jams, and the pure fun of stomping on the clutch and shifting my M3 is an adrenaline rush I want to enjoy for years to come.
