Not to start a war but I didn't like on my 335iS how the dct did not shift all the way when I would downshift very fast. I opted for the manual because of this.
OP wasn't trying to pull the downshift paddle multiple times. DCT has a function where it can downshift to the lowest gear for max acceleration. To do this, we depress the kick down button and pull the downshift paddle once whilst in S mode. It's a fantastic feature.
