Love jc reviews
He hates as he calls them "Flappy Paddle" automatics and that started with the first Ferrari, Aston and Lamborghini automated manuals. DCT's/DSG's dual clutch boxes have improved automated manual boxes but you still get that low speed jerkiness and occasional hesitation.

In Clarkson's view if you are going to have an Automatic then get a "Proper" conventional auto with a torque converter.
With the ZF 8 speeder being so good I have to agree with him, far better than the VW DSG in my other car.
