Green Flag in display

What does the green flag next to the 100 on the speedometer mean? I searched the manuals to no avail.

Yup. You have sport mode engaged. Next time your in Drive, give the gear shift a tap downward (toward the center console). That activate or deactivates Sport mode

Re: Green Flag in display

When is sport mode, does that engage the paddle shifter automatically? Or can you drive in sport without using the paddle shifters?

Its still fully automatic. You can use the paddle shifters in both normal and sport mode. All sport mode does is increase the RPM between shifts. So youll stay in lower gears at higher RPM's for better throttle response vs the standard driving mode.

Re: Green Flag in display

Sport mode really wakes the car up (atleast with the V8, not sure about with the 6). Changes shift points, throttle response, puts it in aero ride height. Its actually quite fun!

Can you use the ACC when in sport mode?

Sport mode... Holds gears longer and engine brakes on down revs when off throttle. Also the shifts are much quicker between gears.

Good question. I dont see why you wouldnt be able to but more importantly why you would? No need to have cruise control set at 70mph and your RPM's at 4k when you could be in 8th at 2500RPM. Would just be a waste of gas for cruise control.
