D4 vs tiptronic

Is there any difference between the wear D4 and tiptronic have on the transmission?

No. the only difference is the solenoid that activates the shifts is disengaged, and the shifts are actuated by the driver's wrist.

It might only be 4 gears, but I can make the ride much smoother if I shift instead of the computer. The only problem is after driving a stick shift for so long, its awkward to move the shifter up for the 2nd and 4th.

that would confuse the hell out of me (the whole up is up and down is down vs up down up down up)

Re: D4 vs tiptronic

I read a write up once on how to reverse it, because that forward for up, backward for down is counter productive, especially since it goes opposite to the inertia. Essentially you need to just reverse the polarity of the sensor, but I haven't seriously looked at it.

Re: D4 vs tiptronic

No, otherwise I would've linked it. It was in a magazine anyway, though not sure which one.
