Have to agree, or either fat lazy Americans!

There's nothing like the feel of a knob in your hand.

That only bad point with dsg is the cost of repair other than that really smooth fast and as about as different as you could get from a 'auto'

Dsg from factory under caddy can’t handle as much torque as the engine can... they are weaker than the manuals. But that’s why people swap engines and the dsg which belong to the petrol engines which are better. Still prefer auto over manual... but the auto gearbox in a sq5 or A6 the V6T diesel... nothing can beat that one! It’s even better with the Rs6 biturbo petrol engine! Is the same 8 gears tiptronic. Would be funny to have it in a caddy, however the space for it will be an issue.
