Not sure if we're talking about the same thing, but it is slightly more noticeable when the engine goes into MDS 4 cylinder mode now than it was before.

I think it is because the RPMs run a tad higher in ECO after the TSB.

Has any one with the new tsb noticed better shifts in sport mode when getting on it? I don't like how early or soft my 8 speed shifts when I'm in a hurry (especially when I use the paddles).

Thanks, good to hear that I'm not the only one to notice the increased humming sound when the engine goes into ECO 4 cylinder mode.

I also feel that the 1-2 upshifts were a bit smoother before but overall I am happy with the update.
