What is your cruising rpm usually with your 6mt? I noticed that above 3k rpm it's nothing but sweet music, but the drone zone between 2-3k is painful. With DCT I caught myself cruising usually in that worst range, so it looks like I'll have to adapt my driving style to stay out of there.
I'm generally anywhere within the 2.5k rpm to 3.5k rpm range when cruising. I barely register the drone anymore. All I hear is how this car should sound when it leaves Regensburg.
