The problem is that the s-tronic is reasonably new technology and a lot of people prefer to stick with the more old fashioned technology.
The problem is that some people (vocal minority) have expectations that the DSG/S-Tronic is faultless (which it most certainly isn't) and they rabbit on about their own frustration with minor challenges turning them into mountains. They incessantly rant on about these unicorn mountains when the mountains just do not exist in reality. They are not sycophants as sycophants will flatter to put a person down. They are just noise makers.
I've had three cars now with DSG, each has been an improvement over the last. Not faultless but neither are any of the manuals Ive driven and in almost all of my driving, the S-Tronic in our S3 is superior, for us, versus the manuals we have and currently drive (again, personally in our conditions).
If you prefer manual, great.
If you prefer DSG/S-Tronic, great.
