Hmm, e x p a n d? you'll have to go test it for yourself.

DCT will shift if you're dragging the brake pedal a little, I think it just needs to know the brake pedal is pushed in a little (like I said, just enough to engage the brake lights, but not enough to really stop you).

If you're driving down the road, you can go from D (or S) to N just by pushing the gearshift lever to the left. Then you can go back into D (or S) by pushing it back to the right. The computer knows which gear to pick for you.

I also got the software upgrade today, shift lag is gone, or almost gone, or barely noticable.
