hey guys i have a 2005 Audi A6 4.2 V8 that has 335HP but when i try taking off there is about a sec from when i Acceleration to when the car takes off i really hate that and would love to fix/remove that is there a way to do this any help would be great thank you and god bless Audi lol
I had the same problem on my 05 3.2. I did a throttle adaptation in VagCom and it made a big difference. It even improved my mpg's because I wasn't having to press the pedal down as much. Give it a shot and please report back!
Mine does this and I've narrowed it down to what the cause is(at least on mine).
When you slow for a stop sign and come ALMOST to a complete stop, the lazy transmission tuning doesn't allow it to hold 2nd gear to take off again. Instead, it becomes confused as you push the throttle harder.......then the trans pauses and downshifts to first gear.
That is why you get the pause, and then the car tries to rocket away. Newer model Audis have netter trans tuning and will hold 2nd gear all the way down until you make a full and complete stop. Yet Audi does not see it as enough of a problem to uodate the shift schedule of our older cars.
The most effective way I've found to deal with it is to bumpt it over to Manual when coming to a stop sign, and take off again, then bump back to auto after you're moving again. This holds second gear since you likely have not make a complete stop.
Hope that helps.......syupid that we can't get small drivability concerns like these addressed.

(had to adapt kickdown first then group 60)
