I'm very happy with DKG. When the car has just started up and it's cold, the first shift, when the car engages gear has a lovely mechanical clack noise, which I love. It can be a little grouchy till it warms up, but I like that, too.

At WOT, in sport+, shifting from 1-2 will spin the wheels for at least a second, on one occasion, along with a sensation that your car has been rear-ended by a truck, further shifts at WOT will chirp the wheels. It's violent and mechanical, and I love it. I also don't get that annoying boost drop between shifts that I experienced in a manual. I don't think you need to worry about 15 customisable settings. ///M engineers have picked the best ones, you just enjoy driving the car, whatever transmission you choose.
