DCT question
 
Hello guys.
I apologize for this dumb question I'm about to ask.
As I recently got a m3 vert, I'm wondering whats the best way to drive DCT.
Say ur driving in D, do you need to let go of gas(like driving a stick) or just keep ur foot on the gas (like drive an traditional auto) when shifting?
Or it doesn't matter either way.

thx in advance

The manual describes the correct behavior which is to drive like a traditional automatic when in D. There is no reason to let off the gas when in D or S, the car takes care of handling the rest.

Definitely keep your foot in it. That's one of the main benefits of DCT.
