its just some engine braking, shouldnt be too stressful as most modern cars have the necessary technology to make the wear caused a non-issue...that being said, dont drop into 2nd at 50 mph TOO often.

it's normal...shifts just aren't fast at all with a Steptronic. You're just feeling the in-between-shifts lag, and when it finally engages in a lower/higher gear, the engine runs at a different RPM than the previous gear is all :hi: dun worry about it.
