    Beats me. I'm not too sure there are many differences between the two; I believe Tiptronic is a Porsche label. There might be differences in how the two work on a technical level which someone more technically inclined can enlighten you about, but I believe at the end of the day they both function roughly about the same.

    I think Porsche and VW Group cars call it Tiptronic, other manufacturers have to call it something else. BM, evidently, call it Steptronic.

    I never was one for automatic cars anyway

    Thanks Jed. I guess you are right. It may or may not be any difference at all between the two.

    Perhaps I should have posted the question in the Auto Mechanic or Motor Sport forums in the first place.
