The 7 speed has a closer ratio between gears so will mean you can stay on the power more often.

The manual has 50/50 weight distribution & considered 'better' by purists.

Best I can give you is don't let anyone convince you 'buying a dct means your not a real car guy' a real race driver would have the dct... a drag racer would have a dct and a circuit racer would have the dct.
A very sensible post, and I agree fully. I don't care what people say about manuals and like I mentioned, it will 99% be the DCT, I just want to experience what the hype is all about...unless Harris and the likes are right and it blows me away, with the info I have, I don't see myself getting the manual.
