Having had numerous versions of both, I respectfully disagree.

The DCT can also be tactile and involving - itís just different than the experience of the MT. And I can understand why people love each...but the DCT and PDK are far from the dim witted ZF, for example. Just my opinion.

I get what you're saying. I know there are actual mechanical differences between DCT and AT but doesn't really matter to me. I don't pretend to be race car driver. Literally all my driving is commuting to work and errands. The fact remains in a 6MT you use all 4 limbs to drive and it's fun and engaging. DCT and AT you can drive with just 2 limbs most of the time and when you feel like playing, you're just pulling wimpy little paddles.

Totally understand using all of my limbs to drive - Iíve had many more manuals than DCT/PDKs in my driving experience. Iím just saying that the utilization of all limbs doesnít dictate the ďexperienceĒ.
