The manual vs a tiptronic gear ratio is different, a Tip is .12:1 lower. My tip doesn't downshift into first under normal driving. It's only when I hammer the throttle off the line or manually select it on the wheel that it will go into first. Even then I can tell the car needs to be fully stopped because of how low it is.

So what I'm saying is, if all things are equal (and even since they're not), save a shift and take off in second gear.
