    I notice the auto has the up/down shift on the actual gear shifter (like ford etc).

    Does that mean that they have gone away from the paddle shifter on the steering wheel??:shooting:
    I love the paddle shifting on the steering wheel - very easy to use and great fun. I hope they haven't gone away from it!!!

    Paddleshift isn't as fun as sequential tiptronic shifting...

    But niether beats a 6 speed manual box... I LOVE the feel of really driving a car :D

    The dual exhaust system on the new sv6 looks mad,also the interior is nice with the red dash illumunation,and for the a5 sv6 only $1ooo more then vz sv6.

    They should do it like porsche with the shift. I believe they have upshift/downshift on the actual wheel both on left and right as well as at the gearbox

    I actually prefer a blue dash like VWs and the 380 VRX.
    Atleast it isnt green anymore

    Hehe the manual purists :D

    Well it does look like they have done away with the steering wheel paddles, just from having a lookski at the interior pictures on the net. Im not certain though...

    Give it time, they are only comparable in price to what 17's were 5+ years ago.

    Thinking my order will be for a 6 speed manual SV6 now... Sure a V8 would be nice but really... The first VT V8s only have 185kw and the SV6 has 195kw... That's enough for me :D
