I own a 2012 GTR and 2007 STi. I prefer the DCT to the 6 speed, HANDS DOWN (and I've owned manual transmission equipped sports cars since I started driving 22 years ago). Those of you (specifically scrappy) who think a DCT equipped car is "less enjoyable, less fun, less engaging" are DELUSIONAL. Come on out to Tulsa and I'll show you what I mean...
Yes I have. And they guy who had the GTR sold it about a year later for an 05 STi becase it was "Too much like a video game"...

I'm not saying the car is supesonic fast, I'm jsut saying it doesn't have the engaging driving experience to go with that excitement of speed. I like having full control of my transmission, I like having to regulate gears, and I like the sensation a 3-pedal manuakl offers. The change in forces betwwen shifts helps sell the sensation of speed. I would much rather drive an old E30M3 than a new GTr on a track. It won't be a fast (hell no it won't), but it's beyond just numbers. The M3 would just be more fun.
