Also, from sports to sports plus - no change in tranny shift points right?
As it was explained to me, the Sport Mode setting affects the suspension and steering. The Sport Plus is Sport Mode with disengaged traction controls. The DS shifter position affects the transmission shift point. Thus, the driver is able to adjust for a myriad of ride and performance settings. For example, the driver can choose Sport with the shifter in D; DM, and choose their own shift points; or DS and automatically allow for longer 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear shifts.
