If anyone can help me out, I'd be grateful My dad's looking to buy a new car and he REALLY wants an Audi (no thanks to me, of course! ). Of course, he's going to want a slushbox no matter what, so what I want to know (just to feed my curiosity) is how much slower are the tiptronics compared to the manuals? I heard from somewhere (don't remember exactly) that Audis have some of the best torque converters out there, since they don't have that tendancy to have catch again after you let off the gas, so that's why I wonder. Anyone have any answers?
