This is terrible news, but i'm stuck now. If i changed to MT i would still have a wait.
I have heard the same thing from my dealer. To be honest, I was not sure whether they are simply trying to stop people from changing their orders to DCT from 6MT. I was also told that they are not sure whether it will actually be DCT or SMG when it does come out. Personally I'm taking some of this with a liberal pinch of salt. (I've ordered 6MT anyway...)
