After the start button...

I'm not an admin so I can't start a poll...but for curiosity how many of you others switch the power button on before putting on your seatbelt?

Also do any of you not use your power button? How many are in power mode ALL the time?

Huh??? I'm very confused...

And... are you talking about an IS250? I don't believe the IS-F has a "Power" button. Unless you are referring to the START/STOP button.!? Either way... I'm confused.

^^^^He's referring to the Sport Mode rocker behind the steering wheel (on the right side) on the '08 to '10 models and on the right side of the steering wheel under the Bluetooth controls on the '11 models. A number of threads have been written about this. IMO, the throttle response in unacceptable in normal mode. I automatically switch to Sport Mode every time I drive.

Ahh... "SPORT" button makes sense. I was confused bc it was being called a "POWER" button. I was thinking to myself... Hmmm, I could make good use of that! Where exactly is this mythical button.!? lol

In heavy traffic, normal mode is better for crawling along IMHO. I can modulate small throttle openings much better.

Otherwise sport mode is a lot more fun.

Yes, sports mode, sorry about that ;-) I also click it into snow mode if I find myself misbehaving.

I don't use sport mode that often. My drive to work is less than 2 miles, and I go through a school zone and 4 stop lights. Not enough time for me to get to enjoy it. I think it makes me enjoy sport mode that much more when I do get the chance to use it.
