Audi A4 1.8T DSP Automatic

I am about to buy an Audi A4 1.8T. After driving the car on two occasions I asked the dealer to confirm my suspicion that the DSP automatic transmission will not start in 1st gear, it always starts in second. He agreed and said the exception is apparently if you are on a steep hill. I found this a little annoying, the car is otherwise fabulous. As my wife has only an automatic licence I am hamstrung. Is my and their interpretation correct and is there anything you can do about this, by way of replacing part of the electronics which govern the transmission?

Thanks for your time,
