    VVT's are a bit crap with the jerking between gears. Only when you have given it a bit of extended revs though.

    The old 1.8 block was far smoother

    My 1.8 vvti jerks when changing from 1st to 2nd.You need to press the accelerator down as you let the clutch up.The more revs you give it before the clutch fully bites the smoother it is.As a test try changing from 1st to 2nd without taking your foot off the gas.The engine will rev as you depress the clutch but if your quick enough,as you let the clutch back out the revs are high enough for it not to jerk.

    Unfortunately theres nothing you can do to erradicate it completely.
    I had a software upgrade applied to the engine a while back which kept the engine revs up for longer while you changed gear.It helped a bit but it still can do it.
