    AFAIK the allroad never had the multitronic. It is either stronic (in 204 and 245) or tiptronic (in BiTDi).

    The tip tronic is a good old fashion torque converter slush box. Just a modern one that’s quicker and more responsive.

    The tiptronic used in the BiTdi is a ZF 8HP autobox and if you look at the applications for it you’ll see you’re in good company. It’s a fantastic box imho.

    TBH thats what I want her to get as Im always suspicous of any of the wet/dry plate ecu controlled clutches/gearboxes, I see enough expensive issues on the trucks.

    But the ZF8 torque converter tiptronic gearbox is ONLY available in the BiTdi derivative - too much torque for the s-Tronic DSG dual clutch box.
    The two single turbo V6 diesels get the s-Tronic.

    Nope. My October 2013 Avant SE has 17” rims. Odd but true. However, I do have adaptive cruise, blind spot monitoring, comfort seats, Bose, full sun roof, adaptive lights, auto dip, tow kit, lane assist and a few other things I can’t remember. An Audi salesperson called it a ‘unique’ spec which could only be replaced if I bought a new one. Fab for towing my caravan to Europe though
