I think the Steptronic is fine. I had it in my 2007 328i Coupe. Now currently in a DCT 135i. The Steptronic is butter smooth, shifts great, gives you the option of Sport and Regular. Everyone loves to bash the Steptronics on this forum, but if you need an Steptronic, you wont be disappointed when comparing it to others automatics. Is the DCT nicer? Yes. But are you compromising big time? No.

Honestly, save your money.
