They're not the large paddles you might be accustomed to seeing. I saw an A5 Tiptronic dealer demo this weekend and was surprised out how discreet the paddles were. The paddles don't really stick out that far from the steering wheel. (Sorry no pic.)

Was the A5 Tip you saw an S-Line? What color was it? Go take pics!!!!

If I'm not mistaken, I believe it was Meteor Gray. It had black interior. And no, it was not an S-line.

BTW, I think you forgot to add "please" on the end of your last statement. :p

Yes, as stated, all S5/A5 tips have paddels (as I said, I test drove one), and they shift faster than normal Audi tips. There were rumors that Audi worked in a downshift blip, but I did not feel it.

While I was out running errands today, I figured I'd swing by that dealership and snap a pic of the paddle shifter from the passenger side perspective (since I failed to do that last time).
