Does it seem a bit rough to those who own one? Or is it just my car?

I haven't noticed anything with the new GXP here. I'll pay close attention when I leave work tonight.

[edit] damn, I need a sig :P

Yes it does to me. Definitely quirky. Sometimes I have trouble slapping her all the way down into first as well.

Mine makes a slit clunking noise. Almost a clicking sound. It has from the day I got it.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to get back up here until now. Noticed nothing out of the ordinary for the transition here; shifted smoothly.

Mine seems rougher than it should be. Definitely rougher than any other shifts.
