Sure, I owned a tC1 (2010) that I traded in on my FR-S.

Snowblind is correct. The only thing the tC is better at is getting groceries. It's more practical, mostly due to the hatchback, but saying...

I dumped my tC because it was too practical. I had these backseats and this cargo room, and I found I almost never used them. I was sacrificing driving fun and performance for dead space.

Engine braking is very significant in the lower gears (1-2). I generally just downshift to slow down and only apply the brakes in 1st.

Agreed. And thanks to the car's very reasonable price, it's likely a first MT for many of its owners. They're going to be hard on the transmission until they learn to drive it smoothly.

Absolutely. I generally only use the paddles in D mode to take temporary control. If I'm running in full manual mode, I don't use the paddles at all, just the shifter.

It's worse than that. It'll also raise the beltline due to pedestrian safety regs. The end result will be a much less attractive car.

It's my daily driver. I knew from the beginning that it was going to get beat up, like all DDs do. I don't sweat the scratches and rock chips (there are plenty now), I just enjoy the ride.
