    One of the most dumb ass things GM ever did.
    I can't tell you how many times it stopped me from shifting into 2nd.
    If you have an M6, get it and be much happier for ever amen.
    Be who you are and say what you feel 'cause people who mind don't matter, and people who matter don't mind.'

    As mentioned, the skip shift only applies to M6 cars. GM decided to force the driver to shift from 1st to 4th in certain situations, thus calling it skip shift - having to skip 2nd and 3rd. Technically, you don't actually have to engage 4th gear, just move the shifter into 4th and then you can go into 2nd. It became rather annoying, being locked out of shifting into 2nd gear until you put the shifter into 4th first. So the skip shift eliminator was produced, which allows shifting as normal.

    If you are looking to improve shifting in your A4, there are settings that can be adjusted with a tune. Frost - a site sponser - does mail order tunes. I have only heard positive reviews, and those with A4s are very pleased with how the car shifts afterward. Many members on here have gotten one, so just ask around if you want some feedback.

    Everyone here swears by Frost, so I think I'll give it a try. And I was reading somewhere that the cags was away narrow way to avoid being listed as a gas guzzler and incurring a 3k tax.
