    Multi tronic or S-tronic ???

    Been told by a friend that Audi has a version of the old Daf variomatic transmission ! Is that the "Mulit-tronic" ? for those that remember it was basically a belt drive set up forward to go forward and back to go back simple! but not very good!!! I have almost given up on finding an A4 Avant 2.0 TDi S-Line in a colour other than the "usual" black, silver etc but have possibly found one which is a 1.8 TFSi (160) auto with paddle shift ? I am thinking this is the S-Tronic gearbox...........right? If it is how does it rate with those that have it on their cars, I have been on Audi UK and been through the explanation of how it works and it reads great but in day to day use I have no idea. Can it handle more power as if this is the car then a re-map will be happening at some point..........

    Any advice/info guys as usual would be appreciated

    If it is a 1.8 TFSI (160) with paddles then it will be a Multitronic gearbox. I have driven a few derivatives of the A4 range with Multi and S Tronic gearboxes and have found the Multi to be very flexible. You could compare it to the Daf system but with 40 years of progress. Fuel consumption with the multi is good and as it is fitted as standard to the 3.2FSI it should be able to take a remap.

    Assuming the car you are looking at is an S Line Avant with the spec listed above, so you have the Tech Pack, DAB, 19" wheels, B&O and paint as extras.

    Having had both, S-Tronic is the better gearbox, I find the Multitronic quite "lazy", but then most auto boxes are compared to S-Tronic!

    I've never driven multitronic, but last year had a 2.0TDI Leon with S-Tronic and it was impressive. I am seriously thinking about it on my next purchase.
