Stupid question.. but cant you just switch it over to manual and put it in 2nd when you start, then you could put it back into auto after that if you wanted to?

I do this with my 2018 A8 pretty much every stop light, but I drive in manual mode almost 24/7 at this point.

yes...you can take off in 2nd by putting the trans in TUTD(manual) mode and selecting 2nd gear. The Op simply programmed manual mode so it won't ever downshift into 1st. Auto mode still shifts uses 1st.

You can not put a 2020 in 2nd gear to launch. 2019's maybe because they have a different tcm?

Yes you can. The indicator will flash back and forth from 1st to 2nd but it takes off in second with the proper settings.
