    SMG's are so boring.... i don't understand why an enthusiast sports car doesn't cater to what they want the most, a standard 6 speed manual

    i already have a sports car, i would never consider one that offers ONLY SMG... i'd just pull the trigger on a vette or a porsche

    i understand that SMG's shift faster, but it sucks the sports and 99% of the fun out of the sports car for me

    it doesn't matter if it "helps", its all about the experience that a manual adds to the sports car

    basically.

    when the fucking car shifts faster than you can blink, why do you care to slow that down with a manual clutch? why are the fastest cars on the planet now tiptronic? because it makes more fucking sense.
