Yes, always remember when you are in the wet your tail will come out even on a small curve when WOT in 2nd.

It is scary when I was heading towards the median strip one morning and the keep left sign.

However, everything on means your engine power just keep getting cut all the time.

I am the direct opposite Ian..

The first thing I do, once the car is started, is press the M button..Never drive without it ON..

The MDM is weather dependent... Wet roads and I dont touch..
Dry roads and MDM is activated..

Who in their right mind will drive WOT in 2nd around a bend in the wet..

Half throttle or less and your tail comes out regardless..

Yes i know you are an M-addict I just forget to turn it on most times... not today though, on the way to Advan early this morning I was having some fun

Weekdays to work is a 20 min crawl in 1st & 2nd gear so no point ...also i like the car to warm up before MDM or M-mode.

Weekend the missus complains about M-mode as jerky for passengers

Urban/residential areas are no place for lateral movement IMO ... unsafe and too many obstacles... things get sideways too quickly in the 1M. Take it to the remote/country roads or track.

I wish i had this skill

Definitely ... this is my 1st in the 1M @ 4,000km.

Cops on 1st part of Putty within 30kms from Windsor & the last part near Hunter when you come out of the twisties. Also lookout for bikers.

Guilty - when I first got the 1M, a car decided to accelerate in front of me merging into the pickup lane which I was already on while he should have give way. Decided that I was not going to have any bar of it and go WOT. I would have been fine with the 135i. Ended up going sideways for a little bit facing the ditch. Losing vision on the other car was a bit scary.

Learnt my lesson that day. .

I know I know... hearing you guys . Again, driving the car like I was on the 135i. MDM on the 1M behaves very differently to DTC mode on the 135i.

Love to meet Advevo. He is awesome.

I have the e-copy of the 1M supplementary manual.

Does anyone has an e-copy of the AUS 1 Series owners manual? 2011 or 2012 would be ideal.

Thanks

Waiting for my 1M

Hi everyone,

Just thought to introduce myself. I've been driving an Audi RS4 for the last 5 years and just ordered a replacement, 1M AW (one of the last few orders available in Aus). It will be built in June for Sept-Oct delivery.

Been reading up on the 1M and I'm very excited. RS4 has been a great car but the 1M will be much more fun. I will miss the noise my RS4 makes though, natural aspirated V8 sound is intoxicating.

Look forward to meet up with Sydney siders 1M owners in the near future.

Cheers,
QT
