I had some intermittent glitches, had a very few (2 or 3) of the chattering occurrences in the heat of the summer but nothing like some have reported. I've had some rare odd shifting occasionally like odd downshifts but for the last few months it has just been shifting magnificently (knocking on wood here). I have attributed this to break-in as I now have around 5800 miles on the car but it could just as well be due to the colder weather too I suppose. I also have been running premium gasoline non-stop pretty much too which really straightens my car out running wise. Really though it has really been shifting perfectly since around October and I couldn't be happier with the performance of the DCT. I had the DCT update done sometime in the summer, don't remember exactly when but it was still very warm outside.
