The excellent Steptronic gives me all the control I need on the RPM. I use M/DS mode about all the time. I even lift throttle between shifts just for the fun of it. Once accustomed to it, it is very enjoyable. Most manumatics just suck, but not this one.
Frankly, I no longer see a point in that 3rd pedal. I wouldn't say this about our 2012 manual Civic.
Lifting between shifts is the only way to drive that thing in m/ds. Shifts are brutal unless accelerating hard.
