P.S. Here we had some +90 temp for 3 weeks already and I don't experience anything like you mention. One question though, how did you drove it the first 1000 miles (1600 km) ?
I drove for economy for about the first 3000 miles with an occasional romp on the pedal now and then. Gas was $4.00+ a gallon then and I was constantly watching the MPGs to see how high I could get them, kind of a game. It's approaching 5000 miles now and I've been driving the last 2000 with little thought of the mileage and more of a mix of normal and aggressive driving.

The car is so darn fun to drive it's easy to forget about the low speed issues with the DCT and that can be a mistake under the right (or wrong) circumstances.

I'll try a tank of higher octane as suggested, thanks for the tip!
