EAT8 opinions

Hi, does anyone have the EAT8 in the new Riftter, Berlingo or Combo Life, how does it compare to the previous generations automatic gearbox
Thanks

I do have EAT8 in two Berlingos. These are my first automatic PSAs so I have no comparison but they seem very nice. Shifting is quick and smooth with occasional jerkiness where software fails to determine the best operation.

There's one annoyance tho: it does not crawl like a regular automatic box - instead it has a half second delay before starting crawling after releasing the brake. The only reason for it to do so would have to be something to do with auto start-stop. Otherwise it does not make sense.

Oh yeah, and the rotary button shifter. Why. What's wrong with a regular PRNDL stick.
