    You can program them to shift firmer and faster...but no you can't do it on the fly like with a clutch.

    i dont think the paddle shifted a6s are quite like what everyone thinks.

    from what i understand its just like manually shifting an auto

    the paddle shifted feraris or lambos (i forget the one that uses it, maybe both) is an actual manual transmission. they are just hydraulicly shifted, and controled by paddles on the steering wheel.

    i think f1 cars use transmisions use transmissions similar to that design.

    im kinda tired as hell right now so if stuff doesnt make sense thats the reason.

    plus, id say the advantages of a manual are the clutch and the powertrain loss. theoretically, the a6 is gonna have a ton of powertrain loss. plus it doesnt have a clutch, so launching it is gonna be like launching any other auto car. another benefit of a manual tranny is YOU are doing the shifting. ur physically moving the shifter from gear to gear--that and the clutch combined, is the ability to shift harder, softer, faster, etc.
    the advantage of an auto is it KNOWS the best time to shift. so basically i dont see ANYTHING good about the paddle shifters other than them just being kinda "cool" (which id say, its a "cool" concept...)

    ready for the flaming...

    Well, I can give you an example of why the paddle shifters are actually useful, but it doesnt apply to camaros.

    On the SMG or DSG (girlfriend has a new GTI with the DSG 6 speed, its fucking killer for an auto) which are basicly just computer controlled manuals(IE: computer controlled clutch, instead of the TC and planetary gears) the paddles are more effective, because the computer shifts when you hit the paddle, RIGHT THEN. Like, instantly. I can get a faster time in the GTI with the paddles then leaving it on its own.... because the tranny will go all the way to the fuel cut everytime on its own, but that actually is slower in the GTI (stops making any more power after 6000, not freakin 6800)

    Alternitively, there is the fact that you can hold whatever gear you want... instead of automaticly upshifting all the way... if you wanted to say: slow down, drift, prepare for a race, etc...

    But mostly, its just fun watching that bitch shift in a couple hundreths of a second... I wish I could shift that fast.

    A6 with the paddle shift.
    i've driven the vette with it and it is like manually shifting an auto, but its more refined. it is a lot of fun.
    i just drove the regular c6 auto A6 without the paddle shift. it shifts a lot better than i thought. it shifts right when u want it to without jumping around the gears or downshifting too far.
    GM has some good autos now.

    I have driven the new vette also with the A6, it is not like the F 1 shifters. It is not an instant shift. You have to pull the paddles about 2 grand before you want it to shift. But still fun to drive.
