    Once again, no manual transmission. Who cares its an extra point something to 60 faster or that shift times can be measured in microseconds, the paddle shifting will never offer the driver involvement of a manual. tried countless DCT and paddle autoboxes and they are all boring after a few days. They deny you upshifts and downshifts as they see fit.

    I guess Audi really wants me to buy a BMW for my next car.

    I'll take a sportback/hatchback thank you very much...suits my lifestyle just fine. The sedan does nothing for me.

    ^ probably pretty much in line with the ttrs....

    What's not to like about a practical awd hatch with plenty of room for 4 adults and gear etc...with an angry turbo 5 cyl under that hood that can be easily tuned to make 500 plus hp....Subaru created quite the loyal following using pretty much the same formula?...and now that the STI is sedan only, perhaps an opportunity exists for Audi to fill the void

    Agreed.

    I have been keeping an eye on what Audi will do with the RS3, hoping that they will offer it with manual trans, even if it is an added option. Regardless how fast the DSG can shift, it rewards none of the senses. With this latest news, it is unlikely that I will stay Audi on my next car. STi will most likely be my next car, or I will just have to move out of the snow belt and to open up my options.

    Have you been on the inside of an STi? Compared to any new/newer Audi, it's junk.

    I know many don't like DCT's, but I love them. I've had many powerful cars (600 RWHP C6Z, 700 RWHP MR2, and more) and I road race and auto cross. Occasional drag strip.. If DCT is faster, then hey, it's faster! Being faster rewards my senses :)

    Anyways, there are plenty of threads on this topic already haha.

    ^^^ yes we do!! This is my favorite Audi engine and I've been waiting for it in a sedan! The power capabilities will be insane for this chassis and should be fairly easy to maintain out of warranty!
