DCT cars are usually going for more than the stick's. I don't think any dealers are selling at invoice right now, even the manual cars in SoCal.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
