2014 Shifting
 
Ok,
Can anyone explain some of the difference in the shift mode.
I know the difference between economy, sport and manual shifting.
But whats the difference between drive with eco off and sport mode?
In sport mode the eco lights off and the screen has S
and its a lot more aggressive but whats Drive with eco off? :confused:

You basically have 3 different driving modes. If you want to maximize fuel economy, keep Eco mode on but the car will feel like it has less power and rpms will stay low. Turning Eco mode off I consider a normal drive mode with a little more power than with Eco mode on. Rpms will stay higher than with Eco off. Then sport mode will keep rpms between 2000-3000 or higher so engine power is increased. Sport mode also slows you down when you let up on the gas. Seems to use engine braking and downshifts to help slow you down as you are coming to a stop. The new tranny software update might have reduced the engine braking affect but i have not gotten it yet. I hope this helps.

It just changes the shift pattern. Think of it as:

Eco = Conservative
Eco Off = Normal/Moderate
Sport = Aggressive

I prefer eco off for most driving and sport when I'm about to pass on a dotted yellow, but to each his own.

Does anyone else find it annoying that 'aero' height is only activated when you are in 'sport' mode?

I know that in the other modes, aero does come automatically come on - but only at much higher speeds ~90kms.

I want to permanently use aero (at any speed) but in eco mode.

Or is there a way around this?

It's only 1/2", do you actually notice the difference?

It might be my imagination - but yes it does seem to corner better and the somehow the steering just doesn't seem as 'floaty'

Right, thanks for this and yes I did read about this.

Bit concerned that:

1. Its like an aftermarket mod
2. That its goes lower than current specifications.

I'm really just after something that will use existing ride heights.

But I think its crazy how you can go into aero mode without having to go into sport mode.

H:confused:

Actually I noticed that in the old model, you can shift it into sport mode ... independant of whether it was in eco or otherwise.
