I drove a VW DSG for 5.5 years and so far this tranny is mostly smoother. Like the VW, it doesn't like rolling stops. One thing you always need to remember about these transmission is that when the transmission begins a shift, the worst thing you can do is change the pressure you have on the gas pedal (if depressed). The thing shifts expecting it to be at the same place at the beginning and end of the shift. You can expect a rough shift if you move the gas pedal during one.
