Question about Steptronic...

I have not really played much with Steptronic. In fact, I only threw the shifter to the left once in the driveway. Ha!

I've been doing a bit of reading about it and watched a few Youtube videos and have a much better understanding of how DS and Manual mode work now. Once question that I have not found an answer to is this...

Can you go from Manual back to DS then DS to "regular" D while in motion? It doesn;t seem like you could go from Manual to DS but maybe Manual to D or DS to D. Does my question make sence?

Do I need to be at a stop to go from one mode to another?

Thanks for any info!

You can change drive mode in motion.

You can't actually go directly from manual back to ds. You first have to knock it back into "D" then back into "DS". But you can do that while in motion
