Love the manual like features, and the ability to disable MDS with one click of the shifter. No shudder, no stalls, nothing but good for me. Highway MPG is decent as well at circa 19-20 mpg range even with elevation gain and altitude here in CO. My only complaint is the drive by wire lag which hopefully can be overcome when the tuners figure out how to crack the code.

That said, someone earlier suggested on another tranny thread that perhaps the existing 545 tranny could perhaps be reprogrammed or flashed to the upcoming 6 speed, we'll see.

for the lag in the drive by wire i know Diablo Sport has found a fix for the issue for the older hemi cars so it shouldnt be to long to get a fix for the new Hemi motor.
