decisions, decisions... What to do..... Living in queens, commuting to the city..... MT doesnt make any sense.... My brain says no, my heart says yes. fuck.
Your theory that you "won't be press the gas" with DCT is flawed. An M3 with a MT or DCT is a felony reckless driving citation waiting to happen. Likewise, either transmission driven sanely on city streets is no serious cause for concern.
There are a plenty of reasons to favor one tranny over the other, but probability of tickets "ain't" one of them.
