Default Audi Drive Select on manual cars

hey, anyone can help me out with this it would be great. Is the Audi Drive select system on a manual A5 worth the extra money? 3k is a lot of money for me, how much is the throttle response and the steering tightness? any input would be great before i decide on something.

thanks

In 2012 model year, Audi Drive Select comes with a broader Sline Sport package for $3400. In my opinion, well worth the money. The steering and suspension tighten up very well, compared to default settings. Considering in 2011 model year, Sline ($3000) did not include Drive Select (another $2500), it is great bang for your buck in 2012 to pay $3400 for both.

Keep in mind you MUST run winters if you opt for SLINE, whereas without it you some people do drive their stock all-seasons all year round.

The vehicle looks 10X better with SLINE on the outside and the interior including seats are definitely worth the upgrade.

Good Luck,
Paul.

The difference between comfort and dynamic is noticeable, and as USPAVANTWANTED said above is included in the SLine (which sexes up the car a lot). I think you'd regret it if you didn't get it.

thanks guys, that definitely helps especially from people who have it.. I'm hoping the dealer can give me a good deal on the 2012 s line models when the 2013's are out if they still have stock.
