    I rather assumed that they had beefed it up for use in a sports sedan. I have no info on that, though..

    I'll probably be one of the 'losers' to get the CVT, but I wonder how it will respond to the usual upgrades, TBE, intake, tune. I like the idea of the adjustability of the shifting (I'm a tech addict) and I enjoy paddle shifters. Plus I sit in crappy traffic more often than not...and lastly...I lean towards lazy.

    I wish they would of just used regular 6 speed automatic tranny with dynamic rev matching.
    If you're upset over someone elses opinions then the issue isn't with the person giving the opinion but rather yourself for taking it personal.

    This is hard for some to grasp as the country is so different. I sometimes sit through 40 minutes of stop and go each way during commute on the freeway. Because of this, I haven't had a manual for 5 years..Even now when I want a 2015 STI or WRX (won't be getting CVT), the biggest hurdle is telling myself I can deal with the traffic. In fact, i've been looking for a cheap auto commuter car so I can be realistic with myself that I can take that when I am sick of traffic so I don't start to dislike the manual too soon after I buy one...

    I'd imagine the paddles would be a PITA. If they move with the steering wheel, like the few cars with paddles I've driven, when you need to shift while turning the paddles can get confusing.

    Why would you think that? They optimized their existing CVT for more sporty dynamics compared to the CVT in their other cars, ergo it's "specialized". So what? Your logic makes no sense...

    I'm sure it's just a remapped version of the CVT in use on the FXT.

    My 335i has the paddles that stay in place. Sometimes in the middle of a turn, I have to shift using the shifter on the drive/park stalk since my hands on the wheel are nowhwere near the paddles and it is easier to go to the stalk as it has up and down shift. The paddles, with up one side, and down on th other, are a PITA when you are in the middle of turn..

    so the "specialized" one is the one that comes with the wrx? o.O

    Why does Nathan from The Fast Lane Car say at the end of his video review that they are expecting to have the STI out 1 year after the WRX?

    I've driven manuals in crappy traffic for over 30 years. My current WRX has a beefed-up clutch that's surely stiffer than most, and I drive it in stop-and-go traffic without really noticing. Is it a fitness thing? Are we becoming a bit "dainty" as a society?

    Not sure what exactly. Perhaps at almost 40 I'm sick of traffic after driving in it for 20 years. It's not a fitness issue, at least for me, as I get plenty of that in everyday. It doesn't help that my current transport delivers crazy torque in any gear and almost any RPM. Sticks are awesome cars, and tons of fun on the open road, or in a canyon, etc. Even general driving in town is more enjoyable. I think perhaps you are one of the few who enjoys one in traffic that I know of.
