The DCT is really an improvement compared to the 6AT. quicker and more instant shifting, shorter gearing, especially the higher gears, and of course the 7th gear which is nice for cruising. For me the choice between these would be easy.
The 8AT would be a bit more difficult. Based on what I read I would prefer it above the DCT, but I would need to drive it to be sure.

For me it would be strange if BMW would connect 4 transmissions to the N54 (manual, 6AT, DCT and 8AT) Let's see....
