Was #ahem# testing out the car and whilst pushing it in "S" mode realized I was coming up to a notorious speed camera near the airport underpass. So I shifted it down into "D" mode... and then lo and behold, the car went to D5 and kept revving up and down. Solved by putting into neutral then back into D.
On the other side... tried it again... pushed the car in S then D. This time, it worked. Repeated and then it flashed D6 and then D5 and back to D6 several times....
Is this a known problem, or is it just me not knowing how to drive a bloody automatic? [Grumbles: would never happen in a bloody manual car..]
On another question of technique. I guess in a DSG I should pretty much toss out any idea of engine braking and just realize that I"m going to wear out my pads and rotors
