tiptronic is the wrong word there...

if you practice h&t then you can blip the throttle in a manual when breaking and changing down and its an even bigger buzz

I do agree that SMG is a whole street and a half ahead of a tip Porsche, Merc or Audi in that you have direct control.

Yes, having the software blip the throttle is nice, but wouldn't you rather do it yourself? It can be quite satisfying (if I ever get it right consistently!)

Yes in theory it would be nice to blip the throttle yourself. However
in reality you would not normally do this. It just puts a smile on your face when it happens without thinking about it

Its almost an auto reminder that you are driving something a little special

I always blip on a down change on my manual cars-makes for smoother driving and its being nice too your gear box-though the smg does not match the gear speed perfectly anyway. when really pusing on I H&T in the CSL as well!
