Would be a big F..... mistake from BMW if it was smooth gearchange in S6 mode. I want to feel Im driving.

Its more important that automatic mode is smooth than the fastest setting in manual mode.
Too bloody right.... the fact that you will get the extra backward push (without the SMG head nod forwards!) with each change is the ONLY reason I'm just about to confirm my order for DCT..... I've never considered an auto before and if the changes ended up being totally smooth with DCT I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole...... smooth auto mode for the wife and S5/S6 for me...... win/win

I'm just praying that there is no noticable delay between pulling the paddle to the shift actually happening (especially in the fastest modes)
