Well, took delivery this weekend past . Nice car. Will take a few pics at the weekend and upload.
One disappointment though, on reading here I thought that I could decide upon individual settings for the exhaust, steering and suspension but I have learned that this can only be done if the MMI (read satnav) had been ordered. I have only the choice of comfort, auto or dynamic and I can say that dynamic simply cannot be used and in any case there seems to be only 4 gear changes (not 7) in dynamic. Can someone confirm this for me?? :(

Hi there, look forward to seeing some pics soon. In dynamic mode it runs a sports gearbox which has 6 gears if run in automatic mode. If you switch the gearbox over to manual mode in dynamic and run it on the paddles it then converts to seven gears again. You probably haven't seen more than 4 gears in automatic dynamic mode due to the fact you would have to going at quite a speed to see fifth (well over 100mph). I agreed its not the most comfortable ride in dynamic (to say the least!!!). I'm lucky to be able to choose auto mode so I can switch the suspension and steering to comfort or auto but keep the gearbox/exhaust in dynamic. If you do run it in dynamic mode I would always change to manual gearbox as you can get the noise from the exhaust without having to run everywhere at 4,500 to 5,000 rpm. Give it a try and see what you think? Cheers

Yip, you are right; the only way to run in dynamic is in manual mode. But the ride is just too hard, it is more for a track day. I am seriously pissed that Audi cannot see fit to give anyone who buys a 65K car the option to individually choose these settings. I now have no choice but to use auto all the time. :FIREdevil:

So you must have ADS (as you've said you have the choice of Comfort, Auto & Dynamic) - is there not also the "Individual" button/option on the ADS, as there is on the S4?

No, my ADS button is on the console behind the gear knob and beside the seats. There is only comfort, auto and dynamic. I have cheked the oprions too in the car settings on the display and there isnothing there in th emenu either; but maybe I am missing something......anyone??

Also noticed on pictures here that most people have a start button on the centre console along with the MMI buttons, my MMI buttons (don't have sat nav) are on the dash below the radio and I do not have an engine start button. I start the car by pressing in the key. Very dismayed.

The start button needs the "Keyless entry" option specifed. I've been speccing one up after a test drive and would definately want this.

Thx, I guess when you have had an RS4 before you expect things like the start button to be just there and not specced with keyless entry only. Hmmm, we should be told these kind of things when we are in the Audi showroom!!
