I don't want to lose the paddle shifters for sure.

I won't be buying a new car that doesn't have an automated manual or an automatic. With the stop and go traffic we have in Austin, there is no way that I want to clutch my way home with hundreds of shifts.

After having many manual transmissions I really like the paddle shifter instead of wearing out my left leg in heavy traffic, much easier but I do see some advantages, especially when racing . The dual clutch sounds better but I haven't driven one yet. Chumly
