The DCT is actually a "net" higher performance machine whose transmission resembles a Porsche or Ferrari. With its left-side finger and thumb controlled "paddle shifting", the rider can override the automatic mode with subtle push-button up and down gear changes. Don't kid around, the standard model is a sturdy beast but the DCT is on another level.
