Correct me if i'm wrong, think of any motor sport with sequential box's. Rally / Touring cars etc. They pull back on the shift to go up the gears 1-2-3 etc. The when breaking they (bang) it forwards to go down the gears 6-5-4 etc. Why then is the DSG manual shift (stick) forwards for up and backwards for down?? I noticed this on my first test drive ages ago and you soon get used to it, but it seems not to be the 'obvious' way round. I'm sure BMW SMG is the same (and toyota thingy) Just wondered if anyone knew the logic behind it.
