foot off gas when shifting?

hi guys, first time owner got a 335 xi on the way with the sport trans.

When shifting with the paddles, do you need to let of the gas? Does it have a clutch?

Good answer.

No, you don't need to lift in the auto when shifting up the gears If you think about it, when you're in full auto mode, you don't get a warning then have to lift when it changes gear; it just does it. So when you're in manual mode, you're just triggering the changes rather than the software but it's otherwise an identical process

only in a manual transmission is it suggested, puts a lot of stress on the clutch if it is being shifted back into gear at full revs.

This used to be the case in old DCT's but not any more.
Plus the 8HP is not a DCT (although it shifts like one) so keep your foot planted!
