    I know it has been mentioned before the new A/S3 facelift has a new function on the DIS where it prompts a gear change and the correct gear to be in at a certain speed.

    People wanted to see this in action (me too!) so I found this vid of a new S3 (facelift) which shows the function about halfway through!

    Enjoy

    that's interesting.

    at first I thought it was a DSG, but obviously it isn't.

    Just noticed this function on the car that I picked up today - very nifty indeed! It can be turned off in the settings of the DIS as well.

    Thanks Jamie. Good use of the dead space in the DIS on non DSG cars.

    Very cool - reminds me of those economy lights (which suggested when to change gear) that used to get on cars 15 or so years ago - Can remember my Mums old Scirocco having one
