DCT and any other dual clutch system like PDK is way smoother as you say. However that's the problem I dislike with them- it doesn't feel as connected when you are shifting. SMG is so idiosyncratic in nature- closer to a manual in feel- it has a personality to it. It feels more raw and I can take that over any performance benefits.
