    Dear All,

Looking forward to replies audi fans.

    Hello,

    I'm new to the forum and the Audi, i have just orderd an A3 170ps with the S tronic G/Box,
    I was lucky enough to test drive without the salesman, so i tried the lot including launch control. Fantastic!!!
    It works by having two clutches, and sort of two 3 speed boxes, as you engage drive, first is selected in one box, and second in the other, so gear changes are smooth and faster than a human could change.
    The Sport mode is excellent, the suspension appears to stiffen the rev counter allows max revs before a change, and even the exhaust note sounds throatier.If you do a search on google and type in DSG gearbox, you should find all the info you need
    You will love it.
