My 2.0T A3 DSG nearly threw itself off the dyno rollers when it changed down on a power run a few years ago - in 'manual' mode.
My 335i DCT was on the dyno last week and was taken all the way to the red line in 4th gear and did not change up. Also when in full manual mode it does not seem to kick down when you pass the pressure point. I've noticed however that if the engine speed resulting from a change will be too high then it won't do it. Overall its a brilliant piece of kit.
