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.

If you want to use all four limbs learn to left foot brake like F1 drivers.

Two feet.

Two pedals.
