Band-Aid is the key word here. - and if it were I'll be gone too . .

But I am willing to accept advances as long as they improve performance . . .

In that respect manual is more or less gone already. But I don't want synthetic shifts in a transmission that doesn't need em.

IMHO, to justify its' price, the S209 needs to perform at least as well as my moderately powered 05 built beater, and even that might not convince me to buy one cause my next STI isn't likely to be moderately powered.

Really hoping at least 330 stable HP from the 2.4L with 3300 lbs weight limit, or lighten the car to keep under 10 lb / hp ratio.

If STI loses mechanical AWD with manual, that also likely be the end of Subaru for me. I drove my wife's Forester XT CVT for a while and yes I appreciate the combination of silky-smoothness and relative quickness but it is just not for me. I don't care about 0-60 times on DCT type transmission. Rev-match synchro thing is fine as long as I can turn it completely off, and not like BMW M2 where I also have to turn traction control off

The problem is there is almost no one else that offers this AWD/MT combination. VW Golf R and Sportswagen 4motion 6MT are the only ones that come up to my mind, but I'm not sure about the reliability. Impreza & XV, while nice, don't do it for me since they are too slow.

Well that’s rather disappointing if true. I think a true DSG would be great in these cars...no weird automanual nonsense. I consider myself a manual purist, but I’d love to see DSG as an option and would be more than willing to try it and even consider owning it over a manual.

^^^^I agree. I've been saying for several years that the STI should have a dual clutch Sequential manual transmission version of the current 6 speed as an option...these transmissions shift much faster than people can and allow for more precise powerband output less drop off in power etc etc clutches last longer ....there is zero downside. The car would be 4 seconds flat to 60 if not faster with a dual clutch and faster in the 1/4

DCT is on the way out. Subaru isn't going to put R&D into one right now.

Automatic transmissions are the future. Manuals will diminish slowly and the ones kept around will basically be for the novelty of having one. Don’t get me wrong, I love rowing through my gears

Does someone have a link to this, the OP link doesn't work. I haven't heard of this, however, a DSG in an STI would be fantastic in my opinion!!
