Okay, apologies for the trolling comment.
I was in a groove defending the new CVT against all the doubters (and there are a lot of them) in several threads and was getting a little frustrated that people weren't having any faith that this one is different.

I tried to search for the video that was linked somewhere either on here or Nabisco but couldn't find it. It was in Japanese, but the driver was tracking the new Legacy DIT w/ CVT and raving about it.

I was just a bit excited and didn't want nay-sayers to spoil the mood.

I guess we won't really know until we see/read some solid reviews on test sessions.
