Very nice!!!! They sure did hussle the car down to the dealer after just being built last weekend!! Glad you finally got it. You have us beat, we waited 10 weeks!! Our gas mileage and DCT are both improving by leaps and bounds with increased mileage. While our DCT has never been really bad, I can sure tell what all the fuss was about. However, while you can still tell it is not a standard auto, it is very acceptable to me. Mileage has increased from mid to upper 20's on mixed driving, admittedly "spirited" driving, to low 30's on the same type driving. Saw 38 on the highway on a short trip, 34 on a longer 2 1/2 trip just after turning 1000 miles on the odo. Hope you have good luck with yours. I can really tell a big difference in both power/performance/mileage now vs brand new.
