APR TCU tune. DSG is still jerky in sport mode in the sense it feels like a downshift as you come to a stop. Doesn't bother me at all, I like the aggressive feel of it, but the TCU tune didn't really "smooth" out those downshifts in sport mode - if that's what people are hoping for.

Unitronic TCU smooths things out.
Almost a little much but with more HP the DSG tune matches.

That's funny, to me it seems very intuitive. Forward go faster, back to slow down.

Do you run your mouse in video game days inverted? Might explain it if you do.

Every race car and/or car that runs a sequential runs it that way primarily. For example, slamming on the brakes, you (your body/legs/arms) are pushing away from the front of the car, thus pushing to downshift seems natural. Of course some people don't find that natural but I'd say the majority do.

Anyways, moot point, no way to change it around anyway.
