That was (generally) the advise of the DCT owners who were having positive results at the time and I found that, at least for me, it also worked.
Okay, well I don't have the selectshift model but I was thinking about having the car reset and just stop experimenting and drive the way I'm comfortable so it learns my driving style. Maybe I'm doing too much experimenting or I'm just really anal and have to just turn the radio up and stop listening for every noise.
