Triptronic have only been available to order in the last month or two, so I doubt anyone will have taken delivery of one yet, not for atleast a few months.

I agree with the above. I ordered a Tip in Dec., the factory picked up the order a few weeks ago with an estimated delivery date of June 2 and I was the 1st. Tip order from my dealer. It's doubtful there's any delivered yet, at least in the states.

Tiptronics were only available to order in the UK from 26 Feb. I have ordered one and just got my comm number, and expect to take delivery in mid May/June.

Graham... is this because you are frustrated with the clutch for driving in slow traffic?

Hi Graham,

Just wondering if there is an update on the revving issue yet? I have just heard that the Tiptronic will not be available until August. I would probably go with a manual if this issue has been resolved.

First tips are being built or have just finished being built. Mine is scheduled to be in port in mid April and at my dealer by 5/5.

The revving issue has not been fixed and Audi Germany don't view it as a fault, they see it as a S5 "feature"!! To be fair to the dealer they agreed that it was a problem and were frustrated with Audi's approach, but thier hands are tied. So they have intercepted thier own tiptronic order and adjusted it to my spec as a replacement for my manual car. It's due in June.

Im confused - could you elaborate on what this revving issue is? Is it on the Tip or the Manual?
