I agree with you that DCT cannot be as smooth as automatic ttransmission since it doesn't have any torque converter but For Your Information good DCT design are suppose to shift more quickly and more smoothly, at least, than with a single-clutch. Which is not the case of the FOCUS. I recommend you go to BMW and make a road test with their DCT and you will feel the difference. If the focus didn't learn how someones drive after 45000KM, it will never adapt. What about the increasing noise it makes? Next time don't loose people time instead jumping to IDIOT conclusion.
Well not duh you genius, the Focus DCT will NEVER be as hardcore as BMW DCTs because BMW can program their DCT to be as agressive as it needs to be.

And for the record, BMW DCTs also shift as 'slowly' as our Focii in regular modes. In sport modes those times drop.

We don't have a sport mode. Not one on the likes of what BMW gives their cars with the DCT.

I'm not sure what you added to the spent a lot of time saying nothing at all
