Wasnt aware that puma was just a US thing - assumed it related to UK??? Im not in the least bit technical so dont understand it all anyway - i just drive the bloody things - but prefer it if they drive properly!! I drive in S5 all the time which admittedly doesnt highlight the lag issue much if at all. But occasionally when i am in default D2 auto setting the lag issue is very much apparent. But its not just my car - ive driven two friends cars each with DCT and both are the same as mine and i even drove a car off the forecourt today at Sytners and it was equally apparent. Its at its worse when you are doing say a 3-point turn in the road, going from drive to reverse etc - the lag is literally 2 to 3 seconds before engaging - hence why i say its embarrassing and could be dangerous if youre trying to do a quick turn with traffic approaching either direction!! Ive had 2 E46 M3's and 2 E46 M3 CSL's and i dont recall this being anywhere near as big an issue???
