    I really wish Audi would give us 3 engine/transmission modes. Eco, Normal and Dynamic. Eco would offer start/stop and shift around 2200-2400, normal would shift around 3200-3400 and Sport would shift around 4000.

    I end up using manual shifting 80+% of the time since Comfort is way to conservative and Dynamic is at the other extreme.

    I use them all pretty equally, depends mostly on if my girl is riding shotgun or not. Lol. I really do agree with most there is something left to be desired in reference to the "gap" between COMFORT and DYNAMIC modes. To be honest I'm not too happy with drive select. The AUTO setting is a joke, it doesn't automatically do anything, it just puts everything in the middle. It might as well be called "MID." The DYNAMIC mode is awesome but clearly not for daily driving, I wish it was called "TRACK" instead. The DYNAMIC mode makes the magnetic ride way too harsh! So it's COMFORT mode for me most of the time.

    Let me ask you guys this, which mode is best for the longevity of the car. keeping it in Dynamic all the time seems harsh on the car.

    I would think comfort as you can really see the RPM drop while cruising in the lower gears.
