You're the only person I know who has a DCT and doesn't like the fact that pushing the throttle past the resistance point and using ONE click of the downshift paddle automatically selects the best gear for you to drop to in order to get max acceleration.

Besides, if you had read the manual properly, you would have realized you can simply push the throttle down, but don't break the resistance point (which still provides a kick especially with the power button on) and downshift nice and slow, one at a time, until you get to whatever gear you're going to.

Boggles my mind how people find the dumbest shit to complain about.
