The automatic thing might explain it, you have to remember that these cars are awd and transmission slackness is to be expected, but I must say that I have tested both the Q7 4.2FSi and was loaned a A6 3.2FSi which was an auto while my S5 was in the shop and never experienced any of the above, so I can't explain it at all.
