    I used to think that way too...

    I would never own this car in a manual. I understand why some want one, but if your business is the fastest speed...

    While one is playing around for the next year with clutch slip, I am hazing the tires in a second gear start and into third and than nothing but vapor as the A8 shifts faster than any human.

    YMMV, literally lol.

    Sounds like a repeat of what occurred in November 2014, except this time, it's a supply vs. a transmission flash update issue.

    LOL... Let's see, buy a manual to make driving around the city 24/7 a lot more fun and engaging or buy an auto so the 1 or 2 times I go to the track I can be slightly faster?

    Hmmmm... make driving around more fun for ME or insist on a faster ET to impress someone ELSE.

    Got it. ;)

    You track monkeys that run your car a billion times, auto all the way! I just never understood people buying a car with options they'll only see the benefit of on rare occasions.

    Now, if you ENJOY auto and can't be bothered to shift yourself (and if an extra MPG will make or break you), more power to you. This whole "I want to be faster" stuff is lame though; a manual Hellcat and a good driver will still beat the snot out of most any car on the road you're likely to encounter.

    I bought this car for the ultimate driver's experience and an auto completely disconnects me from that.

    You can keep the 8 speed.

    I can see how the A8 is faster but I have a M6 and love it.

    Actually, my A8 is faster than a manual all the time ;) since it is being used all the time!

    And it is not just faster at the track-it's faster everywhere.

    However, after years of driving manuals, I prefer the flappy paddle shifters and will continue to do so now that technology and equipment has caught up.

    YMMV
