My salesperson said even i did not choose the $1500 damping control option, i would still have the 3 position mode selector. To me he is wrong?

Also, if i dont have the selector , the car drives in normal then? And is ok for most people? Any turbo lag? Thanks for your time.
you need to get the DHP package in addition to M-sport to get damping control.

with M-sport, you DO get the switch to control eco, normal, sport, which controls drivetrain and transmission. but without DHP, it does NOT control damping.
