agreed.

The newer DCT is a different story though, IMO. It seems too slow to respond at lower RPMs and through corners. Personally, I think BMW really dropped the ball on that one. The shifts are smoother with the dual clutch, sure, but the quick shift is just not there like it was in the raw e46.
