Few tiptronic questions?

    Car is an 05 2.5TDI allroad with coming up to 25,000 miles.

    I'm assuming since it has been serviced properly and has such low miles everything is fine mechanically but:

    a) Why does the transmission hold 1st gear for so long when gently moving away from a standstill? In tiptronic mode you can change to 2nd much earlier and the car pulls nicely.

    b) Why does it sometimes have quite a hard shift from reverse to 1st gear after reversing out of a driveway for instance?
