I've driven the M2C and X3M back to back. While the size between the two is different comparing just the shift characteristics, the DCT in the M2 is far superior. It is definitely quicker and more definitive with the way it shifts. I always prefer a manual but I'd choose DCT everyday over the ZF if I had to chose. Those who say it's the "same" speed either haven't driven them back to back or don't know what they're talking about. Some may be able to live with the slower ZF due to "comfort" but this always amuses me. Go get a M340i or M240i, etc. if you're concerned about comfort.
