Have always owned and driven a manual (pushing 20 years), and will keep doing so... until they pull it from my cold, dead hands... This car is the first I've ever owned that's real-wheel drive, and it's double the power that I've ever had, too. Definitely still a dream car for me.

The "notchiness" of the transmission did take some getting used to, but now I really enjoy the feeling of engaging each gear.

Mike - I'm afraid I'd feel the same way about a DCT. A fun, tech-ey toy to play with for a while, but I feel like it'd soon lose its luster for me. Love the feeling of engagement when driving with all four limbs, and the satisfaction of working hard to get it perfect.
