Sports selection

Recommended Posts

Best bit of fun was driving down the Cunningham's Gap [near Warwick QLD] without any vehicles in front and not using any brakes or accelerator. I stayed within the speed limit and recommended speed signs using the Sports Select to go down and up the gears to either slow or accelerate. Certainly gave the transmission and ATF a good workout so did a change of the ATF when I got home. 

Most of my driving is using D [Drive] but when going down a mountain range I am likely to use Sports mode to save using the brakes too much.

^^ I'm guessing so. Haven't exploited mine properly yet but on one occasion I did try it & used the paddle shifters & thought it worked a treat. The best part is that I choose what gear & when I want it. Everything also livens up, throttle, steering, only problem with the Aurion is that the engine so damn smooth I can hardly hear it, not like my Hachi.
