I have been noticing this on my A6. If I set "manual" fan speed to
3 or 4 (for example, if temp is "LO"), then setting a new temp
makes the fan adjust accordingly. It seems VERY nice, way above
having LOW/AUTO/TORNADO settings like in the 100 and 90.

I just wish there were an easier way to turn it off completely.
