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.
