Re: First M

Congrats!

My advice is once you are comfortable with the power, give the launch control a try.

Thank you. Love the ride... Will try the m button soon. Adaptive led is awesome.

But having difficulty seeing the any thing in heads up display when wearing polarized sunglasses. Any having the same issue?

Re: First M

Heads up and polorized sunglasses don't work together

Check the car manual and configure the M button before you use it for best results

Use the M button and then tilt the gear to Sport position for a really fast drive

Ultimately, use the launch control..

Along the same lines as configuring what your "M" button actually does, make sure the power/efficiency is in sport mode, EDC is on, and traction in the MDM or off for more spirited cornering.
