I haven't toyed with to many auto box, but the 8AT seems to be having a good behavior! Probably one of the best AT i've seen... but i am not very knowledgable on the subject so dont take my words for it... furthermore i dont really like AT anyways...

For me, the focus is on the 6MT, it's straight forward and much more rewarding!
Simple and no fuss about it ... no wonder the video is so short... (by the way, the driver didn't do the synchro 1-2 that well ... over reving :P

AT is like DSLR - democratizing and making sport driving accessible to everyone by allowing them to skip fundamental steps... a bit too gatget-ery.
MT is like SLR - you have more merit knowing and working the machine, the original pleasurable/engaging experience.
