VW DSG tranny shifts FAST but who knows about long term reliabilitychanchan said:Well only the high end super cars have good clutch-less manual trannies, they can shift lightning fast. Whereas the basic "tip-tronic" trannies aren't nearly as good as normal manual trannies.
But I agree rowing through the gears are fun, but usually I get lazy especially in traffic.
Couldn't agree more. Plus manuals are cheaper to make so they can technically say the car starts at a lower MSRP.^^^ a manual trans. just isnt a manual trans. without a cluch pedal.
mg: i love driving the 911 Turbo in tiptronic!! its quicker 0-60 than the true manual by i believe 3/10 of a second.. and its more practical for daily driving cause if you feel the need, you can throw it over to the "paddle shifting" on the steering wheel.. and thats just as fun as manual...Tiptronic is a joke though.

And in my opinion manuals are phased out already. I would put it at less than 10% of cars are manuals vs 50-60 years ago when the % of manuals was alot higher. (been told that at least lol)
automatics werent even invented many many years ago!
what transmission do you think the model T had? :thumb:
yea i didnt know either... i just assumed hsnap:Yea i never payed attention in history class so wikipedia is my friend
"Oldsmobile's 1940 models featured Hydra-Matic drive, the first mass-production fully automatic transmissions."
"The first torque converter automatic, Buick's Dynaflow, was introduced for the 1948 model year"
