It's an isf!

Well Guys, it's here!!
Picked it up on Monday and took it easy for about a mile, then floored it and enjoyed a relentless surge towords the horizon. Really is quicker than I thought it would be. I'll post pics shortly, but I'm loving it. Espically when it quitens down and becomes a comfy sedan to just drive easy! One question guys, what exactly does the sport button do, I haven't noticed any huge difference weather it's on or off. Maybe I'm doing something wrong!! Thanks again, Damo.

Sport button!!,

Just realised I had to be above 3600 rpm all the time to exploit the sport settings!! Really impressive the way this thing changes gears, and the throttle blip on down shifts is to die for!!! All passengers have been blown away by the whole package, speed, looks, build quality equipment level and exclusivity!! only sorry I didn't get one long ago!! Cheers guys.

The Sport button remaps the throttle quicker and tightens the steering. You should notice a big difference between the two settings. Go out and drive about 40mph then engage the Sport mode. You should feel the whole car tighten up and the throttle get quicker and then turn it off after about 3 miles and you should then feel the whole car unwind.
