    Default Retrofitting Sport Switch

    Hi,
    does anyone know if it's possibile to retrofit the sport switch.
    Would be nice to have a directer steering.


    Sport switch
    D5. The functions of the Sport switch aren't limited to suspension
    control. When activated, it also affects the steering and accelerator
    pedal. The drive by wire throttle is altered electronically, leading to
    a sharper engine response and crisper acceleration, while the map
    of the power assisted steering is also adjusted, giving the driver a
    more positive initial turn-in on corner-entry.

    If correlative ECUs didn't support sport function, the retrofitted switch will then serve cosmetic purpose only.

    Someone WAS looking in to whether they could get it to effect the Auto gearbox, as that is purely down to programming and nothing else. NO idea if he got anywhere with it though...

    Thx for all the answers!
    I'm disappointed that this obiously not possible. But I don't want to give up.
    I'll try to track the wires and have a look which ECU is responsible.

    It has a CDC module which ties in to EHPS, Engine ECU, and a cpl of others, not to mention the extra wiring looms and different sensors... Thats something not even I am going to do even though I did contemplate it once..

    You sure that's not the Traction control button you have?
