seeing that there is considerable about the clutch system on our vehicles in regards to life, adjustment, launching issues, etc etc, any of you have experiences with the other systems? If so, are they plagued with the same isssues? Are they worse/better performance wise?

I have driven my buddys Porsche with Tiptronic and to me it was a very smooth system. He has never informed me of any issues.

I understand Lexus is using paddle shifting in their newer IS series vehicles.

I found a big difference between '04 and '05

I recently bought a 2005 CC 90th Anniversary. Before buying, I had only driven a low mileage 2004 CC that had all the campaigns done. I test drove it in all three modes. I do not know how the two cars differ but my 2005 shifts faster but still smoother in Sport mode than the 2004 shifted in non-sport mode.

I think the shifting in sport mode on my 05 is perfect. It is the right blend of agressiveness without being too abrupt. When you push the revs it is more agressive ( as it should be ). When you lay back and shift sooner, even in sport mode, I find it comfortably smooth.

The car is a blast...
