So for the A6 people

Just found out that if you are in manual mode but hold the right paddle towards you the tranny goes back to S (auto) mode. Did everyone else know this?

If you hold down either paddle it goes back into S mode.

Yep, M mode is the only way that drive. I tapshift 99% of the time, then use the right tapshifter to put it back in sport mode when im on the highway.

I did not know that. Looks like I'll have to try it in March or April. A cold front is upon us here in North Texas. Time to get a refill on depression meds.

I had to explain this twice in two week to new Camaro owners I tuned.

They also thought the M mode was only for using paddle shifters. They didn't know it would shift on its own in M mode.

After calibration, most owners use the paddle shifters less because the transmission is more responsive after calibration.

Hell after having my car for 18 months I just started using Manual Mode and DAMN it's like a completely different car. It feels like the car is way more responsive and it even sounds different to me at least. I HAVE to drive it in Manual Mode now.

Not for me. Mine only switches back to "S" mode if I use the right paddle (up shift). You sure yours does this on both paddles?
