    I got my new OB end of October this year. I really like the car but coming from a 2010 OB there is quite a learning curve. My new one is now past the break-in period of 1k. The new tranny is supposed to be an 8 speed. I do feel 'extra' shifting going on and it feels good but seems quite touchy going forward on a normal take off. I'm hoping that smoothes out now that its broken in.

    The thing that sorta bothers me is the downshifting feel. My OB seems to reach the lowest gear a split second before I'm almost at a complete stop.... Just before coming to the 'complete' stop it shifts down. Sometimes it is more pronounced ??
    I think is should be done downshifting sooner, at least that would feel more natural to me. Anyone else notice this?
