From what I've read the 2010 doesn't and you have to code it in using VAG-COM.
2011 came with it standard.

I did it once, with J and the kids in the car...I probably won't do that often, I don't want to
have to replace any clutch packs or tear something up. It felt like the Hulk Roller coaster where you
go from a dead stop to pretty quick. She's like, wow...gave me vertigo.

You have wet clutch DSG right? If so, launch away, you won't burn out clutch packs because they are cooled by the DSG fluid.

Unless you're launching multiple times a day every day.

Thanks Dude,
good thing about the Audi party is you're never late and the back door is
always left open for passers by.



Thanks Sam, that does give me peace of mind.
I may do it again then, but not often. It was pretty cool.

Porsche launched their Turbo S PDK something like 90 consecutive times and it showed no adverse wear because wet clutch transmission.

actually the car feels the happiest and most impressive in S mode as your roll onto the throttle
but don't floor it...
in D mode if you just punch it to the point where you depress the little nub at the top of the accelerator
pedal, it fucking flies.

There's a whole Facebook group for it!




It's fun to read through some of the posts. My only complaint with them has been their "in stock" advertising, customer service and their shipping methods/charges. I haven't had any issues with receiving the wrong or used parts, thankfully, but they're usually the last place I go to to order parts.

You can't have the caulk without the dongle.

As a matter of fucking fact I did order a spoiler that they claimed to be in stock that changed to not available until
August. I had decided I didn't want it anyway so it worked out great for me to cancel the order but shietttt...

Don't act like you're not looking at my ass...
and the ebay emblem is a hair smaller than stock, so it looks smaller...I am going back and
forth with the company about making a correctly sized one but really for $10, I might call it a
loss and plastidip the oem one along with the "s4"on the rear...I kinda like the debadged look though.

Debadged FTW.
Though, the S4 doesn't have much badging going on to begin with.
