Of course the Cayman had no Turbo so it might better in the R
Yeah, all depends on the car and its programming.

We rented a Tiguan 2.0 TDI w/DSG in Italy a couple of years back. For the first week or so we were driving exclusively on secondary roads, mostly in the alps between Italy and Switzerland. The Euro DSG comes with a gear indicator in the dash display, so I could tell when it engaged 6th or held the lower gears.

It was't until much later when we hit the autostrada that I suddenly saw D7 on the dash and realized that it was a 7-speed DSG, not a 6. The programming was such that it never engaged 7th except for higher speed cruising.
