So, I have been talking to the salesperson at my local Audi dealer and he was kind enough to e-mail an order guide for the 2012 A6. It only lists one transmission available, along with one engine option, and only Quattro. You can get the 3.0 engine with the 8 speed Titronic. I guess what I am wondering is why is this market (the US) only getting the 8 speed Tiptronic, when I have seen this car elsewhere being available with the 7 speed S Tronic (dual clutch - DSG) with the same engine and drivetrain. No 8 speed Tiptronic anywhere to be found.
So, once again, the US doesn't get S Tronic? What is going on?
