Shift quality

I baby it as much as I can and rev match all downshifts, but compared to all the other gears it's terrible. The same is true for the 3-2 downshift...very notchy and noticeably worse than the other gears. In all cases, 2nd gear requires more force than the rest unless the revs are perfectly matched.
Had same issue on my early '08. All I can tell you is it will likely get better with more miles (10k+). It's never going to be perfect. Still, prefer the driving experience to the DCT.
