When I put my S4 into TipTronic, it automatically shifts into second gear without my "say-so" and downshifts into first gear as well.

Sometimes I want to stay in first a little longer for the speed effect... anyone know how I can stop this automatic shifting?

Don't mean to steal the thread but i didn't feel this needed a whole new thread.
What does the "S" function do on the tiptronic box? I have PRNDS as well as the +/-. I know some automatics and tiptronics come with a special button or setting for when its Snowey/Icey but then again some come with a "Sport" setting. So through deduction i've come up with the idea its either "Snow" or "Sport" i think i'm leaning towards "Sport" but i dont want to use it then find out its "Snow" and not to be used over 30mph or something silly like that.

the sport setting just stays on a lower gear longer, it wont shift up to save gas, so u stay on a lower gear and have more power
