Tiptronic driving tips?

Hi Folks,

After nearly a year with our Tip 2.5, I'm getting to quite like it. But i'm sure i'm missing a trick or two. As the manual does not really go into how to use the box I was looking for some advise and tips.

I know flooring the throttle will drop a gear, but sometime it drops two??? Then there is the button that gets pressed at full throttle, what on earth does that do?? Other than seem to enter mental mode. How do you know what 'mode' your in? Is there a way to consistently control the gear changes with the throttle?

Thanks in advance and please no "buy a manual" comments.
