    tiptronic...

    My cars got it, and i love playing around with it, and wanted to know a bit more about it. Ive had a good look about on the net about how it works. cant really find much info? is it litterally just a manual overdrive for the signal from the gearbox ECU, on a normal autobox? or is there more too it? imho it feels to be more 'direct' in the gears in tip?

    excuse my ignorance, ivestripped and rebuilt engines etc, but ive never ventured into an autobox before.

    I'm thinking it'd be a fine halfway house between auto and manual. Interested in reading your replies, I know nothing about them either, would love to drive with one.
