'Sport Mode' for Mk II 5 speed auto tiptronic in 1.9 TDI
« on: November 13, 2013, 11:07:54 PM »
I am not clear on whether there is a "sport mode"  (i.e. higher rpm shift points) for the Mk II 5 speed auto tiptronic transmission.
I believe for the Mk 1 you could switch it to sport mode using Vag-com or through a process with the gas pedal/key/and door.

Is there such a mode for 5-speed auto, and if so how do you switch it (either through Vag-com or some key/pedal/door process)?

I would like the transmission to stay in the lower gears longer (to a higher rpm) when in drive (D).  I know I can shift manually, but my wife drives the car a lot and she stays in drive (D).

Thanks

Thanks for the reply.  When I drive the car, I push it pretty hard.  But my wife drives it most of the time and it tends to be at really low rpm.  We live in a hilly area, and it would be better if the car was shifting at higher rpms when my wife drives it.
Cheers
