Ok. Modification to the rough shifting. It is actually smooth. There is just a lot of it since the shift programming even in Dynamic gets it to a pretty high gear pretty fast. I guess that is just the nature of current cars that are programmed for efficiency. I noted the same in recent Jaguars as well with 8 speed tranny. The 2011 Jag with the six speed ZF in sport+dynamic would hold the lower gear for a long time up to 4000rpm in regular driving. Obviously the Alfa 4 cylinder has a much different profile but I think the D programming could be more aggressive. I just leave it in D all the time.
