DSG--High gear at lower speads

I got my GTI about 3 weeks ago. I noticed that once I pull away from traffic at a light that it quickly goes through the gears, but when I slow down with traffic it doesn't start to shift down until I'm near a complete stop. It seems to stay in 6 around 30-35 mph. Shouldn't it down shift just as quick when I'm breaking with traffic?

I've noted this before. In drive, unless you are *flooring* it, it runs as close to 1000 RPM as possible. In sport, it acts like you're on the track. I still want a "normal" mode - like a normal stick driver in normal conditions. Between 2 - 3k, ready for some acceleration, but not racing.
