Lets play a game, what will need replacing first

a)Clutch from a manual trans.
b)Any part from a DCT system.
Strange comparison since the DCT has a clutch (two in fact) as well. The difference is the DCT is protected by a computer to stop idiots from abusing the transmission.

A clutch in a manual shouldn't have to be replaced for a very long time unless you are abusing it, don't know how to drive a manual properly, or track the car every single weekend.

Bzzzzzzzzzz. Incorrect!
f1, e-gear etc all single clutch and controlled by computer. Infact they wear out faster then manual. So your argument is pretty fkn retarded.

Please try again and explain how manual wont fail or require more parts replaced more often then a dual clutch system...

I think you're retarded when you just inadvertently agreed that they wear out faster than a manual..

Too tough to answer to be honest. Call me boring but it would probably be a Porsche.
