    It should know where you are driving from the GPS, surely?

    Well, some of the systems (eg, LED lights, static cornering lights) hook in to the GPS for some of their functions, so it wouldn't surprise me. Perhaps it does it if the GPS is there, and uses that as a backup method? As I say, I've not ever noticed it do this.

    OK - this sounds plausible. I don't have SD Sat Nav or the tech pack, so the ACC wouldn't have the necessary maps available to determine LHD vs RHD and would use the patented logic referred to above.

    I still end up trying to press the imaginary clutch down sometimes in our Golf GTi DSG - we've had it ages!

    Sometimes mind just goes to sleep I think!

    I occasionally do the same and I've been driving with s-tronic for the last 10 years. Mind you I did drive a manual for 38 years before that!!!
