I wholeheartedly DISAGREE. What you're stating is simply your opinion, and you're entitled to that. However, it's not a fact. It's simply preference to say that the S65 works better with a DCT. In fact, all dual clutches make near instant shifts, regardless of engine types, and they work quite well with turbocharged engines.
