    The tranny (a10) is made to handle this without any effects correct?

    No problem at all!!
    You don't even have to push the button to change from D to S & S to D that's alone tell you it's ok.
    I am doing it regularly!

    Thanks for the quick replies- what about under WOT from S to D to turn it from paddles (keeping MPH) to auto (D)

    That seems like an unusual time to make the choice to switch.

    But at wot the trans will be keeping the RPM at max power. It probably isn't needed as you can only maintain it for several seconds.

    That is fine. Just tells the computer it can take over shifting when it wants to.

    I get some jerkiness sometimes in certain conditions on my A6, but I'm often switch between S & D.

    That's interesting. My car requires me to press down on the button to go from D to S and back. :shrug:

    I have no knowledge on this subject, but I'd assume it is okay to switch from D to S to D while moving, but completely off the throttle.

    i believe that used to be the roll racing method, put in S to hold the gear, then go WOT and put back into D so the computer can shift.. not sure if that will work for the short gears of the 10 speed

    I have no issues leaving my foot on the gas. Your not putting it into reverse. All you are doing is telling the computer to change the throttle response and shift strategy. Doesn't hurt it at all.

    FYI you can go from manual in S back to automatic in S by holding the upshift paddle for a couple of seconds. Also if you ever have long downgrades where you would like some engine braking but prefer to stay in D you can paddle downshift in D and it will hold the lower gear as long as you don't touch the gas pedal.

    It is always nice to come across a thread, where you wanted to ask a question, but didn't.

    Thanks for posting, and thanks for the responses, too.

    PS: What is WOT?

    The 2018 GT premium convertible I test drove would require it to go from D to S but not S to D.

    You fellas should have gotten the manual. Did you know that you could shift whenever you want and hold gears as long as you want?



    I am just messing around and definitely get the appeal of the auto. I'd love to experience the new 10 speed sometime.

    yeah that's what I do on roll race. S go to desired gear, go woot tap it foward computer keeps on trucking. Of course on a roll if you are racing probably want to have the other toggle on Track or Sport +.

    Have not tried doing a roll on drag mode though. Probably not a good idea :)
