What made you give up the MT (I mean besides it getting totaled)?

I wasnt originally set on "im getting dsg" until i gave it a try during the test drive. I really like it, the fact that its basically an auto-manual in terms of how the trans responds and when you press the gas, it feels like the clutch is engaging (because it is). My biggest reason is traffic and its my daily (i drive a lot), its best in both worlds, especially if i tune it and not worry about clutch slip.

Im not done with manual for good, just for a year or 2 then ill grab my weekend manual toy, either a car like s2000 ap1 or a 10 y/o wrangler for offroad/winter beater.
