    Especially the A8 shifting characteristics............they shift slower mabye? I drove one the other nite & it is NOTHING like my 15. What are some of the best stock 2016 times?

    They are identical. The TCM "learns" driving habits so the shifts may feel different from one cat to another...

    Unfortunately OP might have a point. They are not identical. My service/parts manager told me that the new 16 A8 trans has an improved converter made by another vendor. The part number of the 2016 A8 transmission is different as well. The drive shaft for the 2016 model has a different part number.

    If someone could confirm this, that would be great.

    Part numbers get revisions but they are still the same part.

    I agree with DB2, he drove my 16 and it does not shift near as good as his!
