I wish that the 8 speed auto had multiple shift settings like the DCT. To me, sport is TOO much for normal driving. Audi's D/S mode to me is better for everyday driving. Driving in sport around town is, well, a little annoying. I don't need to be shifting at 5k rpm in traffic.

Three modes would be great. If not 4.
