Re: new R owner with some pics (bschurr)

thanks guys. <p>does anyone know of a software update for the new 06 GT tranny? it feels like mine needs one, its acting a little weird but i dunno if its normal. sometimes itle rev real high like up to 3500-4000 when going into 2-3 gear and it acts like it doesnt want to change but eventualy it does. it usualy doesnt use the 5-6th gear much unless im on the highway. at around 40mph itle be in 4th at 2krpm. my dealer said they did all the software updates to it but i dont believe them much. another thing ive noticed with it is when it switches gears itle sometimes rev high then switch or switch smoothly then it feels like it looses a lot of power and torque but a second later it builds very rappidly and sends you back into the seat. it does all these things in comfort and sport settings, i havent tried advanced much because the roads around here are terrible atm.<p>also where are the spacers located at that the dealer should remove? what does the car feel like with them? i just want to make sure they removed mine.<BR><BR>

The only thing I can say is you need to take off the dealer sticker. Unless they are paying you to advertise for tehm, then leave it. Other than that, love it. I should have gotten red. I get pulled over enough in my BS R, so it's goo d that I didn't get red.

If they didn't remove the spacers you would know it, very loud clunking<br>They're stuck high up in the springs
