My name is Vikram, I reside in South of India, I own a A180 Petrol.
The clutch is wet and every 60,000 kms the transmission oil is scheduled for a change, I am at 42,000 Kms on the odo.
Wrt driving modes I usually drive in D mode, only hard highway overtaking I use the downshifts (-) and then go back to the gears.
Putting the car in neutral is a good practice in longer traffic jams in a straight surface, as you rightly said it does put the load on the hold button in the eco mode or just holding the brakes for longer time can heat up the brakes... ideally in an auto there is a self defense technique even if u hold the brakes it dosent harm not sure if its a myth or a real thing.
do keep writing to me thanks take care.
