    Hi all ,
    just bought audi A3 2.0 tfsi dsg and earlier today i was doing 30mph and car was very gently slowing (like the car was nodding off) without me lifting the pedal, it got to 20ish mph and i lifted off(dont know how slow it would have got if i hadnt )then back on to pedal and it was back to normal just wondered any ideas ?one off ? also pulling out of junctions i either pull away too slow or do small wheel spin this normal charachteristic on these ?
    cheers

    Are you leaving it in D mode? If so then it will upshift and might give you the impression that it is slowing (as it will be off boost).

    Try driving it in M mode and use the paddle shifters - it will change your driving experience for sure.
