Agreed on the first gear selection and I have no doubts its a fantastic bit of kit.
Something I never got over was what to do with my left arm / foot. I found myself tapping to music etc just to give it something to do ( didn't have the arm rest in the A3 so could not perfect the 'gangsta lean' while cruising ).
I may be tempted to try again down the line and maybe its just I wasnt used to it
You could try keeping both hands on the steering wheel!! Greater car control and fingers just in the right place to change up or down when required.
