As far as I know the switch just controls the shifting points. So there shouldn't be anytime that switching it would be bad.<P>

Basically it's a device for bringing gear changes higher or lower in the rev range.<P>So there's no speed at which you can't use it, though at speeds above 65, you'll be in top anyway so you won't notice it unless you kick down.<P>It was a real "hooligan button" on my 850 2.5 20V - and doesn't seem to spoil T5-R performance too much either, so don't worry you US hot Volvo owners.
