I've been really pushing my car this week, and I have noticed that the tranny and throttle have really adapted to my style of driving. In comfort, unless I mash the pedal, I don't get a kickdown, the shifts are slow, and the throttle is not very responsive.<p>But keeping it in advanced - holy poo! I crank her up, and tap the throttle and it rev's instantly! Almost no lag! And from a start, it revs up to 4000 before shifting into second. I have to keep it at 4000 RPM's for about 5 seconds before it decides that I won't push it any further and it can upshift! <p>And talk about rough shifts! From starts, I give the gas, rev to 4000+, and WHAM - the quickest shifts I've ever seen this car do, but the roughest too. It really jerks, but gets the car moving for sure. And I feel the 4C kicking in by stiffening the back end when the front rises because of the quick acceleration. <p>And yesterday, I turned off DSTC and turned right into a gravel parking lot going like 30, and WOOSH - wheel spin and the rear of the car kicked out from under me, and I did a 180 and had to leave the parking lot and come back because I ended up in the wrong direction. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> But then my car was all white and dusty from the gravel. <p><br>So here's some advice to you - if you aren't going to drive like a maniac - keep the car in sport if you want stiffness, and comfort if you are a softy. Use Advanced only when you are pushing it like crazy, and it will learn those settings and save them in Advanced, so the next time you want to pwn that geezer in the 1985 Dodge Caravan on the interstate, whip that baby into Advanced and show her some car ass!
