135i DCT

After reading the glowing Edmunds review of the 135i DCT, is anyone else here with long commutes tempted by the DCT (vs the 1M)?

I happen to be stuck in heavy traffic at this very moment, and an auto / DCT sounds pretty good.

They say texting and driving leads to accidents but I think posting in a forum from your phone is ok

Traffic is the exact reason that I purchase a 135i DCT instead of a 1M. I really wanted and still want a 1M but I just can't sit in LA traffic with a manual. I've done it for to many years in to many different cars. No matter how special the car is when you are crawling along in bumper to bumper traffic a manual just sucks the joy out of it. If they release a 1M with a DCT then my 135i will be gone.
