2 sets they claim.

Just got back from the press release at KSC. Like them, quite comfy on the inside even for a big kid like me.

Another complainer about no manual. Maybe if more people bought manual, they would have made it available.

Must be nice to have the Vette at KSC. Nothing like that at Marshall! We don't launch the rockets, but we sure build em!

I love a manual too. It's fun to row through the gears and hear the exhaust change with each shift. That said, a manual fukking sucks where I live. The only solution is paddle shifts. So, I've been leaning to getting something with a paddle shift. Also, people here beat the shit out of cars since parking is limited on a good day. More, I'm pretty finicky with a nice car. I currently drive a people mover Honda for that very reason. Time will tell if and what car I get.

Traffic is the #1 reason I would not want a manual. #2 is my knees.

As soon as they have one at the dealership, I'm going to go there and tell the salesman I'm waiting for next year when they come out with the front engine model.

the DCT is a manual transmission; just solenoid actuated (instead of your foot pushing in a clutch pedal).

The DCT is not a slushbox.

Yes, his pronunciation was confusing.

Can't wait to see one in person, to see if I fit.
