Perfect timing!

TBH, I find I have more control (and engagement) with the M-DCT than a 6MT, but each to their own.

I have a strong suspicion, based on the X3M, that the next generation of M3 will have a power curve that is designed to work with an auto box that shifts really frequently to keep the boost up and the revs in a small range.

Let's hope they haven't compromised your 6MT experience. (you're certainly going to need a faster wrist action! )
