I like it (2004 9-3). I hardly ever use it though, but it's kind of fun to play with every once in a while. There's a slight delay when you shift, maybe a second max. In semi-automatic mode, my driving isn't very smooth. I don't know if that's because I don't know what I'm doing or if it's the transmission (I've never driven a stick long enough to learn how to do it right). One thing that is weird and hard to get used to (even if you don't normally drive sticks) is that you can shift with your foot still on the gas. In the right hands, it's probably a cool feature, but for me it's mostly a toy.
