And all this talk about heel-toe. please, heel-toe shifting merely allows you to rev match (imperfectly I might add unless you're a professional driver) which DCT does a million times over with perfect execution, further allowing you to focus on more important things like braking, turn-in and exit.

Sorry, I just love throwing wood on the fire.
With that argument you can ask why are we all buying M3's when 99% of us probably can't drive them to their potential? There's enjoyment in practicing a skill and reward as you get closer to mastery.

It's the same reason I love shooting with my camera in full manual mode 100% of the time. Sure sometimes I miss the perfect shot while adjusting the settings and take more under/over exposed photos than someone who shoots in a auto/semi-auto setting, but I find pleasure in having full control over the camera and it's very rewarding as I get better/faster at it.
