Right, the auto trans uses fluids to control shifting, so it will never
be as quick or crisp as a manual transmission - which has a direct
connection, via the clutch, to the engine. The DSG is simply a manual
transmission with an automatic clutch. Frankly, I see Audi offering the
DSG with the 3.2 before they offer a traditional manual transmission.
