DSG fanboys will beat me up on technicalities, but I am firmly in the camp that no stick = auto...ergo, flappy paddles = automatic. It could Q(uad)SG...i dont care, no 3rd pedal means its just a fancier way of saying auto.
You can drive it if you want. I dont want it to break, but i'm really not attached to this car. Hell, ive been trying to teach my wife to drive a manual on it..how worried can i really be?
