    1, when its off / not pressed the car is in "normal" mode

    2, when its pressed throttle response is sharpened and the suspension stiffened but the T/C is still on

    3, when its pressed and held for 5 seconds throttle response is sharpened and the suspension stiffened and the T/C is turnt off??

    Hi Adam 1 & 2 is correct, there is a separate traction control button above the sport button to turn it on and off.

    I can actually feel the difference driving, switching the sports button on and off, feel it stiffening up and throttle more responsive, also as said steering lighter!

    U will love it
