If you put your car in sports mode and drive without touching the paddle shifters then it will shift on its own but once you touch the paddles to shift(+) or down shift(-) you will now be operating the transmission manually and will have to shift it yourself.

As @RnS 2.0T said the car will shift on its own in Sport mode and if I remember correctly there is a safety feature built in that will still shift car when in the manual mode to prevent over revving the car.

Yes, the transmission will automatically upshift for you if you forget to shift yourself. I always shift myself in my Sporty 2.0T. It's a heck of a lot of fun! haha:cool:

Thought that was the case. True, it is fun to shift it yourself in sport mode. (y)

I have a 2.0 manual Sport and took it to the drag strip; ran 3rd gear to 92 mph, red lined and engine shut off for protection; no harm done!

I would think that would be the case for manual trans since it can't change the gear as can be done w/auto transmission. There are a lot of safety features built into our cars (in the OEM settings) to protect the motors.

Had to add to this after seeing all the talk of people who like to use the paddles. I got these carbon fiber extensions recently and it has made it MUCH easier to reach the paddles from different hand positions.
