Ok...forgive me in advance for my ignorance and I hope I don't start a flame war with my question. I did
Why hold out for the M-DCT? I understand and have read the "press release" posts on it: It's a dual clutch...seven speed tranny. Very "roughly" it's half way between a manual an automatic. Ie...you "ask" the tranny to shift (by moving a lvl where a manual has a shifter) or press a paddle and it does it. I assume it's very fast...ie...faster than a human could shift gears. I have heard people talk of the "old" SMG.
I guess what I'm really asking is: Is it that much better for performance for all around driving? such as on a track or twisty road? or is it "mainly" a boon to the 0-60 crowd?
Thanks in advance
