I drive the car mostly on the faster side. Honestly, it needs a 7th gear for the manual trans (a la new Porsche 911). Not sure why the M-DCT w/another gear isn't better on gas?

Let's face it - the car was designed for performance w/out much concern for mileage. That's shifted now w/the move toward smaller engines and turbos. However, there's nothing like having a screaming V-8 in a small car. To echo a reaction from my coworker "That car has a V-8? That's awesome." I agree with him. It's awesome.
