A couple questions on the paddle shifters..

1) Will extensive use be detrimental to the CVT? I find the driving experience is definitely better when using them vs leaving it in drive.

2) What is the appropriate way of driving in this mode? Just leave your foot on the gas while bumping the gear up? I'm used to a normal manual transmission. lol

3) When I upshift it "lurches" or "lunges". Is this considered normal? I'd assume so, it's just not as smooth as normal drive. And I'm not talking a redline shift, but normal RPM..
