I have a meeting with a regional director of Audi re this issue on Friday of next week. There are many compliants about this "antio stall" feature on the forum, but I don't believe many people have actually reported it back to thier dealer. If you are irritated with the difficulty of smooth take off and smooth driving in stop/start traffic, then please let me know before next friday and I will pass this on. I don't know how to set up a proper pole on this site so either let me know by responding to this thread or possibly some other member in the know could set up a pole for me. Ideally I just need to know roughly where you are based in the world and how long you have had the car.

Many thanks

I'm just thankful that I dont have this fault. About the only one I havent had yet.
I tried the revs/clutch test in post 9 and there was no difference.

Stop/start traffic is normal where I live. Indeed, I am not long back home after 30 minutes to travel 4 miles. I have no problems like this at all.

I do find that unless the clutch is really fully depressed (and I mean fully) that the gear change is clunky and jerky. Quite a pain as I have to sit further forward than I would like to compensate. Is it perhaps partly that?
