Maybe consider a 230 manual if youíre concerned about fuel economy? Reviews say it feels lighter and more nimble than a 235/240. 0-60 in about 5.0 seconds isnít bad and the economy should be great.

With my usage of the car, I do not go to the track or do any mountain driving. I drive back and forth to work and drive spiritedly when the opportunity presents itself. Figured with the DCT, I can enjoy my coffee in the morning and enjoy my time in traffic a bit more. In my BRZ its a bit of a struggle dealing with NJ roads and a manual, while trying not to spill my coffee in the morning. I'm not 100% sold on the DCT yet, but I am 45% considering it. Once I do a test drive that will be the true answer.
