Does anyone think the reason for the smoother shifts with the Euro tune are due to more riding of the clutch and therefore more clutch wear? What else would make it smoother? I just had my tcu/ecu updated (not by choice) with US V3 and even though my ESS ecu tune was wiped out I can't imagine the shifts being any smoother. My car is a sept 2006 build and I thought the SMG shifted fine with just an ecu tune.
On a side note, I can't imagine anyone driving this car without an ecu tune. Now that I have been driving around almost stock, the throttle mapping is just horrible. I would rather just leave it parked in the garage until my VT2 upgrade.
