    Is there a way to disable the MDS other than putting the A8 in manual mode?

    i assume you have a 392 and not a HC?

    HC=no mds

    i had a 392 A5.....autostick was the only way to get around it....MDS never bothered me...

    whats wrong with MDS?.....soon all cars are going to turn off at stop lights and restart when you push the gas pedal....if you dont like mds(i assume you dont like it), you will REALLY be unhappy in a couple of years when your car is silent at a stop light

    AFAIK, not without tuning or disconnecting something that would illuminate MIL.

    Thanks.

    Yes, I have an SRT 392. I don't care for the MDS as it feels as if it needs to downshift when cruising. I thought perhaps there was a way to turn it off without resorting to aftermarket tunes. Oh well...

    Diablosport tuner has option to disable. On the '15s it involves PCM swap.

    I have no intention of ever owning one of those cars. Sure if you can switch that mode off then fine.
    Can you imagine sitting at the lights in the Hellcat with zero noise. Might as well buy one of those BMW i3's
