All of the hype with masked mules and the debut, in multiple countries is OVER. Getting an interior shot of the DCT in testing, although of interest to serious spy photographers or enthusiasts, just is not that big of a deal. Hence no spy shots. I do think that folks should have at least HEARD the system at the N'ring.
Don't think I could hold out to 09 myself...
True, people are not as curios as they were before. But one would have thought someone would have leaked something by now though.
That said, I am sure there are DCT cars running around. If you remember my other post on this, a German member spoke to a Getrag person who drove one and told him it is fantastic.
Actually, I guess technically speaking, nothing has been "delayed" since they never officially announced anything about DCT to begin with, right?
