I've owned both. Each for about 2 years. I love driving a manual. I'd still be driving the DCT though, if it hadn't tried to kill me so many times.
I honestly believe the DCT is the right transmission for these cars even though I drive a manual. My experience with the DCT was not typical.
Dinan compliment of stuff plus PF rotors and RG63s. Enough for now.
Why, yes. I am an abrasive bastard.
