First run out sport button makes sense

Post by danx55 » Sun Nov 10, 2019 1:39 pm

Hi guys

Struck me the other day that since swapping to the sri, I hadn’t been out for a proper blast in it! Shocking I know
....and as I drove out I suddenly remembered the sport button :)

It all comes together well on some nice B road :D ..... really goes for it up hills and feels balanced and controlled in bends

Cool :)

Cheers

Hi dan , I'll give it a good test sometime .
I'm also interested about the mpg when using sport button long term.Someone on here drives with sport button on all the time.

Had a blast today, great fun. Almost feels broken when back to normal setting.

I use sport button all the time lol - drove about 6k miles in the car now since I owned it, hardly any motorway usage mostly short ~10 mile hopes on small town roads and dual carriage ways and average about 37mpg with a heavy foot. It's gone up by 1 ~2 mpg since I got it mapped...mainly cause I welly it even harder now :D

mpg will be about the same, as the motor is putting out the same amount of power/torque.

TBH my mileage has been almost identical with sport on/off

It was a different car if Astra K had been fitted a Flexride system...
