Just going to post my experience as I am your average DD/no track time guy, but the 1-2 shift was jerky and clumsy initially enough to where I was bummed about my 6mt choice after having only test driven the DCT. Once I got used to the car, I was able to improve the smoothness enough to where my co-workers said I appeared to be more comfortable in a standard again. Then after the initial 1200 service, the car was noticeably smoother yet. This was just my experience and like others have said it is better after warm up, both car and driver.
