I went from a manual 5 speed WRX (later converted to 6 speed), then to 4 different VW/Audi's with DSG (last one had a DSG tune.) Now I'm back in two manual cars (Cayman S and Golf R.)
I thought I was going to hate going back to stick after getting spoiled by the DSG. Yes it is faster and easier, no doubt. But the feeling of ripping a perfect heel-to-toe downshift in the Cayman entering a turn is electric!
as far as my wife is concerned she'd like to get a PDK on the next Porsche. My feelings wouldn't be hurt with a PDK either. It is brilliant!
