And likewise, I think I'm the opposite. After two DSG cars, I returned to manual. It's an option I regularly consider but for the last three cars I've been happy to live without. It's certainly not one of those 'can't live without' options for me.
Having owned 19 cars with a manual gearbox and the last four with an s-tronic gearbox I would never want another car without one. It's like the service manager of the dealer I used some while ago said, when he lent me his car for the week-end to try out the air conditioning back in 1988, long before it became almost standard on cars. He said the only problem with air-con is that once you've had a car fitted with it you will never want one with it. To me it's the same with the s-tronic.
