Stop/Start S-Tronic

I have just joined you guys from the dark side - the Audi TT forum. The TT is a great car, but I think the Q5 ticks all the boxes!

The info on this forum is very helpful, I have ordered a 2.0 TDI S-Line SE (S-Tronic)in Ibis White with a few toys!

I was interested to see if anyone has heard that the S-Tronic will have the Stop/Start system?

Nope it wont. Manuals only, and only the 4-pot (2.0 petrol and 2.0 diesels)
Are you sure? It's on the A3

If you?ve been waiting for the Audi A3 to arrive in the UK, you?ll be glad to know that it will start hitting the showrooms beginning December and will cost from ?18,300. The Audi A3s are fitted with S-tronic dual-clutch transmission and stop-start technology.

Previously, Audi?s stop-start technology was only available on four-cylinder manual gearbox models, but Audi has now expanded the range to 1.4 TFSI and 1.6 TDI variants with the company?s S-tronic twin-clutch automatic transmission. Audi?s start-stop system for automatic gearboxes operates in the same way as its manual system. The system cuts the engine when the car is stationary and the brake is pressed, and will refire it in 0.2 sec

I'm happy with that!

I was not sure how it would work on an S-Tronic!

Less things to go wrong IMHO
