I am approaching 2k miles on my '13 ti. The DCT does continue to improve as it wears in a bit. I like the way the shift points change depending on how much throttle I am giving. If I hammer the throttle then the shift points are higher. The car knows what I have in mind. The only time the DCT can be unpleasant is in bumper-to-bumper at under 5 mph. It is not as smooth as a traditional torque converter auto would be.
