    with these dual clutch boxes designed as an auto replacement, they will vary shift speed depending on parameters like throttle and load even in their sportier mode, so if youíre just pottering around it wonít do a quick snappy shift

    When youíre leaning into the throttle itíll shift quicker and crisper
    Its the reaction time that is slow ie pull the paddle then wait wait wait ok I will now shift. Driving along the DSG behaves nicely. Even in Sport mode driving the shifts are smooth and downshifts automatically smoothly too. Its simply the interaction time between paddle and execution thats slow.

    Great sounding engine
    Engine has a great sense of urgency
    In auto gear shifts are crisp
    In Sport mode and paddle shifts are sloooooooooow - I dislike the fact you push to change and it takes a while for the gear to change ie take place not the action of gear change
    MMI is OK not Great - have seen worse
    Exhaust note isnt a total disaster yes its quiet but I havent pushed it hard to see what it really sounds like
    Seats are comfortable - I tihnk they sit lower than the S3 and I think the side bolsters on the seat are soft vs the S3 being stiffer
    Love the smaller interior to the boat of a Commodore
    Love the knee pads
    Dislike the alcantara - it just doesnt have a nice feel in the hand, to me anyway.

    Looking forward to really opening it up and giving a good old fashioned flogging
    congrats! Looking good! Did your one come with CF caps (seems the case in your photo).
