Strangely I agree with the article, yet I still prefer a manual on and off the track. I know I'd be faster with DCT, but I just love all the extra work that goes into driving a manual. But dual clutch trannies (at least the fast ones) are appealing for other reasons and I have to admit, firing off those lightning fast downshifts sounds and feels pretty amazing as well.

But the steptronic shift in my wife's 335i? No thanks.
