You should get the DCT.

Oh wait, maybe they will retrofit a PDK for you.

They have to retrofit the DCT before they can install the Manual. Read the TIS.

When you're under "warrenty" there is never a charge. Ever.

No charge but you need to make an appointment ahead of time, it's usually better to get the first appointment slot of the day if you want to do the transmission swap, there's a lot of paper work involved

They will make you pass a GED before they retrofit the DCT.

This all seemed to be going so smooth until you had to mention the GED. Way to disappoint her.

The answers will be the same as last year (linky). The comments have already stepped to a higher level. Be careful, I think DSX is still a little torqued that you backed out of the trade.

I think there's a coding project for this. You will need to clip in an extra pedal but there's a kit from Tischer-Price.
