Hi there mate... Welcome to Q-system ownership. Unfortunately there is nothing much you can do about the autobox bogging down off the mark... It's down to the torque converter soaking up the power you are putting into it and the tall gearing.
Remember there are only 4 gears as opposed to 6 in the manual. 1st gear is similar to 1st and three quarters in a manual, 2nd is similar to 2 and a half in a manual, third is like 4th, and 4th is like 5th and a half if that makes sense.... Put it this way....
Ive yet to see a v6 manual that can do 85 mph in second gear!!!
So it is bound to bog down a bit
Driving style can help, for a quick getaway I tend to press the throttle progressively instead of planting it to the floor.
Keep this in mind.... Imagine driving a V6 ford capri in the wet! Its RWD, tail happy and will bite your *** as soon as you floor it, next thing you know, you've ended up in a hedge!
So you treat it with respect and feed the power in yeah?
Same way with the Q-system
It seems to pick up a lot quicker simply because the torque converter isn't deliberately "slipping" the power and torque away. It's like traction control in the way it feeds the power so bear that in mind and things improve a lot.
Not all bad though... what you loose at the traffic light drag strip, you gain back while they are fluffing at the gears 5 or 6 times and you fly past burbling and growling, smoothly wafting... Priceless!
Oh you have to try this too ... sit behind a Skoda VRS and as he is "trying" to pull away from you and frantically flapping through the gears.... Just take a long slow yawn (Because you can)
while on his ***
Now no amount of money can give you a feeling like that when he glares at you through his rear view mirror, indicates and pulls over to let you past
