Exactly.

Jerkiness in everyday driving, while improved over SMG, is still there. So you just took delivery of your $65K pride and joy, take a non-enthusiast for a ride, and the biggest impression is how jerky the car is around town. This is why I said for an everyday dual-purpose car, I'm not convinced MCT with 2 clutches is better than the new ZF's with 5 clutches.

Funny how I summed up this whole conversation earlier and had a whole bandwagon of naysayers...
