Should be pretty even. Traction problems?
The GTS stuck right off the line whereas I had a bit of wheel spin. I likely need to upgrade the driver next go around.

It was a small thing but a pleasant delight: the shortcut keys in the center console are touch sensitive so you can place your finger there to see what each saved shortcut is before you press it.

After the 2-day M School down in Spartanburg the other week I've learned that the capabilities of my car far exceed the limits I've pushed it it to date.

LTE, what does this mean and how is it a benefit?

Long Term Evolution. It refers to cellular technology that is capable of high speed data transmission. It means that when the car needs to update its maps it can do so very quickly as it has a high speed data connection over the cellular networks.

Ok. And this is really for only the services built into the car; sos, updates etc?

No real practical benefits to the consumer?

I learned that I have to manually downshift a tad earlier when coming to a stop to avoid the mega rev-match of 3rd to 1st when looking for a 3rd to 2nd shift. Onlookers thought I was a bozo deluxe.

Assuming my F30 is the same but noticed that when my low tire pressure light came on (due to cold weather, not a flat), it wouldn't let me put the adaptive suspension into Sport.

Lol I'm usually in sport+ 99% of the time! If you're coming to a stop and manually downshifting and you pull the (-) paddle 1 millisecond too late the car will downshift on it's own to 2nd and your pull will actually downshift the car to 1st. So instead of the little rise in rpm going from 3rd to 2nd you get a big increase in rpm since it goes from 3rd to 1st almost immediately at too great of a road speed. So it looked like I'm being a dbag revving my engine real high for no reason lol
