Once you've reached any of the requirements for ending the warm-up cycle (the speed limit is usually the 1st or easiest to acheive) can then push the gear select lever back into D to resume regular shift patterns.
Q,It didnt work for me. Sport mode acted the same when cold yesterday and today (except obviously sporty once warmed up). All good though, im doing XHP/Rod Sutphin soon.
