Tiptronic Auto - Will it Hold till Redline

Does anyone know if the new tipronic mode on the BA Auto will hold till the redline, or will avoid kickdown unless asked?

From what I have heard from the other guys in the forum is that the tiptronic is a full manual style setup...it should hold all the way to the rev limiter. There are limits on the maximum speeds however that you can throw it into tiptronic mode. To prevent overspeeding the engine obviously.

im not sure about the auto, im kinda confused because it says you push the lever to the left from drive and you are in sport mode and the shifts are higher up and faster or whatever, and then if you want to manually select a gear you push foward or pull back from the sport mode postition. so does that cancel sport mode and put it in tiptronic if you shift a gear???

It does hold, and wont change unless you change it. (except if you come to a complete stop it goes back to first.)

as for redline, there isnt one on the gauge. I think it revs til the cut out. (probably not recomended too often)

Thats good if it wont kickdown in sports mode cause sometimes you just want max accelaration in the gear you are in without suddenly finding yourself in first out of a tight corner. This was one of my main reasons for my seriously considering a manual next year rather than Auto.

yup, its heaps better when you can let the torque talk instead of screaming to redline. plus i like to floor it but change up at like 4500rpm, thats the main reason why i dont like autos
