I drove the New TT this summer with a DSG as well and that was cool. upshifts were hella fast.
    and ive read about people driving the ferrari

    I'm just saying Computers are faster not more fun we all know fun is clutching.
    Yup makes sense I actually forgot about the "TOP Gear" video clips where they did the tests with the F1 style trannies and they do blip the throttle and that is cool, makes it more like a manual. Well my next car is going to be either G35 auto or propably g37 by then (probably 3 or 4 years down the road from now) or a Lexus IS350 which only comes with auto and the paddles. The new high end auto transmissions are getting so much better that the sacrifice of fun is minimized and the comfort of not having to shift in heavy traffic is a big plus.

    while that is true my mom had a miniS 6spd then traded for a miniS convertable with the flappy paddles and that car is no longer fun to drive.

    Top Gear Is my Bible, Jeremy Clarkson is my Mohammed.
