M-DCT Owner's Poll: revisited for the growing number of DCT drivers

What shift mode do you use most often? Most often can mean 51% or greater of the miles you drive. (Choose two if you honestly think it's a 50:50 split between two modes)

Would have to be D3...

Most of the time, I just cruise, and D3 seems to be a good one for that. When I want to go for a spirited drive, I go for S5.

I am still breaking it in, but I can already tell that D3 will be my mode of choice "most of the time".

I am now using S3, the default, after the redelivery from ED experience. Back then I was using D3 just to familiarize myself.

When just cruising I use D2...but the M button is set for S5...pretty much all I ever use is D2 or S5-6

D sucks. So it's S4 in non-M-mode and S5 in M-mode.

I thought it was S3 on North American cars, D2 elsewhere.

Default is S3 for US cars. My car defaults to that on every startup.
