hey, I was exiting the freeway in "D" mode. I down shifted into second gear to take the turn using the left paddel. I was paying so much attention to the turn that I was not watching my RPMs. I guess I hit the red line and it changed to 3rd gear. It was still in tiptronic mode cause i could see i was in 3rd gear. ( if it goes back to normal "D" mode the gear is not displayed,plus that takes like 15 seconds, the turn was only like 6 seconds). I dont want to test this again cause i dont want to red line my engine again. I guess this is a safety feature so ppl dont break there car? would it still upshift on its on if i moved the stick to the right and "locked it" in tiptronic mode? Any one else notice in tiptronic when they hit red line it still automaticly shifts?
