Responding to the post about 50mph and easing into the throttle without reaction/downshift. For me, at 50-55mph, in 7th and in comfort/regular mode, soon as I tip into the throttle, PDK grabs 6th. And, if I tip-in a bit firmer, not heavy input, it will grab 5th.

Before delivery, I was skeptical about PDK and even was set on buying PC or the like but I have to say, I’m very pleased with how PDK has been behaving. For normal commuting, I have yet to really see the need to engage Sport mode for PDK and throttle response reasons. I do have one gripe, PDK is a bit slow to react. My wife’s Audi A4 (DSG) is super quick, soon as you pull the paddle, it reacts without delay. PDK, in some gears, isn’t as quick. I’ve had a few cars with dual clutch so I have some experience. I’ll see if there’s a setting that the dealer can tweak for me. Lastly, while in regular/comfort mode, not a fan how PDK won’t shift into 1st unless you’re doing 1mph or stopped. Sport mode does engage 1st at lower speeds though.

The 22GTS shifts into first in Normal. It will even downshift for you if you come to a quick stop. They have tuned the models differently for sure.
At what speed does it shift into 1st while in normal mode? All the trims will downshift for you when you come to a quick stop. Not exactly sure what you’re referring to???

Got it. I’ll do some more playing around like driving it in spirited fashion while while in normal mode and see if it will shift into 1st around 4-5mp

Yes, even in normal mode my S will down shift (engine braking with higher revs) when I attempt to quickly stop with decent amount of brake pressure.
