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?

In normal "D" or drive position, it seems to be geared for economy/gas mileage. It short shifts just perfectly for around town, but if you want anything more than that, put it in the "S" Sport mode and it changes personality quickly.

For commuting, leave it in Drive. For more spirited, paddles, tiptronic, or Sport mode.
