If its done during testing and only for a specific period I would say its a cheat.So when you buy a new audi quattro and you are going in a straight line on dry tarmac at a constant speed and it drops the drive to the rear wheels to improve economy/ drop emissions is that a cheat too?
This makes me sad. :frown2:This seems like new developments...or perhaps I am late to the party?
It seems to suggest its tied only to the 8-speed Tiptronic boxes, so that would be the bigger models? Not sure if its diesel and petrol, but considering CO2 emissions are typically much lower on diesels, I imagine this affects petrol much more.
I wondered why the new S5 has the tiptronic and now I may have a new theory as to why...
Getting seriously fed up of hearing so much from VAG with this nonsense. I'm not naive enough to think other manufacturers aren't doing dodgy shit as well, but it seems that VAG are very very obviously doing it on a rather large and deceptive scale.
Between this and their abysmal customer service I have had to endure over the last two times to sort out a loud rattle (turned out to be the window regulator cable in the drivers door), I think Im about ready to leave after the S5...
