I've driven a few DCTs and none impressed me and no matter how people try to say it's a manual it simply isn't and doesn't allow gear changes when the driver wants to as it acts like it knows better thus isn't a manual.

I fully agree with you. I guess I was referring to a higher end or higher performance version of our DCT.
