Re: Audi Coupe Lighting
As to the idea of shifting 1-3-5 in the coupe. My coupe has a 5 speed, and it works
very well to shift 1-2-3-4-5. No winding the engine, no lugging, and there's always
throttle response when you need it...at least as far as throttle respose goes in
If you need to get more relaxed, dish the big dough for an A4 tiptronic!
