Are the benefits greater than the drawbacks in increased weight and a potential decrease in reliability due to an increase in system complexity?

If it were up to me I'd rather have lighter weight and a simpler overall car.
100% with you on lighter weight and a simpler overall car. Also, I would certainly not want to be the first in the que to get this kind of widely untested technology (and in general something that is brand new and untested). I think I already got a fare share of the DCT lag issue... (I would still buy it if I could go back in time but you see what I mean)
