Slide the gear shifter into the notch on the far right.

your car has a tiptronic feature when you are in drive you slide it to the right and then you can either use the shifter to go up or down or use the buttons to shift up and down

That is the way it works. Allows you to manually change the gears, and over-ride the auto features.

its not even close to a manual
u cant stall and the car will shift when u red line
it will never let u under shift or over shift

hey dezithug,

enjoy your new discovery about tiptronic.

i have an 02 a4 with tiptronic and absolutely love it.

a lot of people will rail on us for not having a manual, but honestly the tiptronic is really fun and more than responsive enough for me.

tiptronic is really convenient though, because if you live in high traffic areas, like new york, as i do, it is priceless to be able to shift between auto and tiptronic.

there is also something now called dsg (a more responsive version of "semi-manual" like tiptronic) i see little reason i would ever want to hassle with a manual transmission in my daily driving car.

enjoy your audi man. these cars are fun as hell to drive.

hey I have a 2002 audi a4 1.8 turbo and I also have a tiptronic transmission. I just bought this car and i think there was like some kind of drink spilled intio the shifter. And now when i slide the shifter to the right to engage the tiptronic mode it doesnt respond. In my cluster where you would see what gear you are in it doesnt show numbers it still shows P, R, N, D where it should show the number 1-6 as I used to see it did I blow a fuse or somethin??? Please help

If you want some answers, don't bring back a 2 year old thread. By the time we realize it, we leave before we get to the question.

But, welcome to the forum.

It sounds like your car is not sensing that it is being shifted into tiptronic mode. The usual cause of this is that the magnets that trigger the sensor in the gear shift have moved or fallen. Run a search as this is a fairly common problem and usually a pretty cheap fix.
