As you tap shift up the range (M1 - M2 - M3 - M4 - M5 - M6) just keep tapping when the tach gets to 3-4k rpm. Once you've got the hang of it you can further push the limits up to the red line. I'd play it safe and practice for a while before pushing the envelope. I'd go out on some casual drives just to get the hang of it... it's like riding a bike... once you figure it out... WOW!! Keep in mind the A6 computer will not let you do anything you shouldn't. You can switch in and out of Drive - Sport - Manual no prob... it's designed to do it. Good luck
Hello, in regards to ur post on the tap shift. im 16 and just bought this car and scared to mess it up lol so i have some questions. When do i know to shift up thru all the gears? and down? Also when should i start using it, like at a red light put it in? And if i have it Manual do i take it back to D then M to put it back in sport mode?
