Btw does it look like I am using the pedals in that track vid ? No, I dont use pedals and anyone with a MT backgroup will be more prone to use the actual shifter not the pedals. Thats how you can distinguish MT driver by nature behind a DCT car
My exposure is limited to driving Audi S4 and reading numerous articles on M5 . Upshifts under hard acceleration were unbelievable but at everyday speeds in the city were jerky (for lack of a better expression) and rather harsh on occasion . That can be modulated with a clutch. DCT is an amazing invention. Very refined and advanced automatic transmission.

Could just be the particular car or Audi's implementation of the software. In DD mode my wife, who was not always a happy camper in the 6MT, can't feel the shifts.

I owned a 2010 S4 MT and the shifts were as smooth as it gets.
The 3.0T and 6MT were great. The rest of the car was...blah...
