Do it drive better with the gear selector pushed over to sports?

Sports just changes the sludgy feeling to a snatchy one.

Manual is how I’m driving it for now as I can control the shifts better. It has to be the injectors or configuration nothing else had been touched.

I’m not settling for the fact they can’t see the issue, I can and I’m having them check it again no matter what they say.

It can get to piss you off when the stock response is “computer says no”.

I had to tell my dealer what was what when my injectors needed changing as no faults were shown.

Can they not drive another back to back in an objective way and draw conclusions between the way either vehicles behave!

No other N54 35i of any type in their stock to try it against... so they say.

I have a friend that I visit fairly regularly in frodsham. It’s 29 miles from west didsbury.

Next time I know I’m going up I’ll get in contact to see if we can hook up with a view to with you seeing what mines like or getting the dealer to drive mine then yours.

I have a 35i DCT here in Newark on Trent.
If you're ever in the area drop me a message and we can compare.

I've noticed the suspension settings normal/sport makes a difference to the gear change feel on mine.
