How do you folks use the tiptronic as manual gears ?
I like to know how to use it as a manual EFFECTIVELY.
Sometimes as there are 7 gears, I forget which gear I'm in until I see at the console. If you shift down from auto D, does it automatically shift down to the appropriate gear?
Can anyone help?
Good description Dan,
That's exactly how my Aussie SLK 350 with M-C-S works.
I sometimes use the M mode and sometimes manual shift in the C "restricted gear" mode. Why??? you ask with an incredulous look on your face....
... Because I like the way it can take off in second gear in C mode if I'm not trying to drag hard off the line.... but I like to gear restrict it so I have some extra go in 3rd and 4th gears around town. Sometimes I feel that first gear is a little too short.
