Not to insult your intelligence, but are you referring to unintended acceleration? Or just a delayed upshift? I know that if I floor it on our BMW it will hold a lower gear for a bit before it...

I'm not a huge fan of Auto Hold as the sensation I get is that the engine will rev a fraction of a second before the brakes let go.. so that's a bit of a drag in my view (ie., wasting gas)

I think I'd be interested in putting rear sways if there ever was an upgrade available. Bilstein has off road shocks which would be counter to what we would want.

At least my Audi has a menu setting to raise the wipers, not a trick sequence to operate like the BMW
