Yes - I have experienced exactly that - disconcerting and distracting when you really need to be focused. After a year and 12 K miles - I am not bored with the car - I still have a lot to learn. The nuances of M are subtle and require a deft hand and sharp mental acuity to fully exploit. I'm thinking of treating myself to M school to refine my M skills generally and my DCT skills specifically, and then maybe, returning north by the scenic route via the "Tail".
