Now for stopping at a redlight I just let it do its stuff. I used to downshift it like a manual, but its pointless.
Thanks. I agree it's pretty jerky downshifting when stopping at a red light. Downshift with the 6AT are pretty useless in that scenario. No throttle blip to rev match. I guess that's where the DCT excels!
On the other hand, downshifting with your foot on the throttle gives a nice burst of power.
I still miss driving an MT though.
