I don't care about the auto tap shift
I would rather have downshift rev matching like the Nissan 370Z
on the manual and maybe a better feel between shifts.

I have my experience with a 4L60E transmission (rebuilt it 2 time) and still broken.

plus it is more fun driving a manual

sorry for the auto bashing, but i feel like the manual is getting a little neglected. they even put in tech that stutter it (skip shift).

Not only did we make the upgrade to Camaro, we implemented it on the 2012 Corvette as well, and will use it on all vehicles with TapShift control going forward

Those are some nice crisp shifts. I like it. Sounds like all tapshift equipped cars will get the enhanced calibration. This is at least the 3rd time GM has changed the calibration on the A6 since it's introduction. Decreasing shift times increases shift firmness and is one of the best mods for performance, feel and durability (believe it or not).

I think thats sweet, but it would be cool to see a DCT for alot more responsive and quicker shifting
