My last car was a 2013 S5 which was great and no issues with the auto box.
Currently have an RS3 and find the auto fine in this also.
Why have Audi ditched the s-tronic for the new S4 and seamingly fitted an inferior auto box ?
I've heard a lot of negative comments about the auto on the new 4's now.
Not liking the sound of this at all !!!
Beyond the previous S-Tronic being a bit fragile I don't think there's a huge reason behind it from what I can see.
Plus the ZF8 has been a proven solution in various high power cars in one format or another (RS6/7, S8) for a fair while so they probably like the proven track record too.
I really didn't think it was quite as bad as a lot of people have been making out. Slower than the S-Tronic but during my test drive through traffic it was smoother and then on back roads it was plenty quick for me!
