    RPM Differences (Normal vs. Sport Transmission Mode)

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Can someone verify the rpm differences (at idle) between the normal drive mode and sport mode for the transmission? Mine has always idled higher in sport, but lately both stay at 900rpm.

    Normal idle is around 600-700. Sport is around 900. Sometimes it can idle higher for me if the car is still heating up or if i have the AC on and its hot outside. Sport does idle higher for quicker launches

    Thanks for the response, very helpful. Think a combination of the heat outside and a/c through me off.

    The car was back to normal tonight when things cooled off.

    Also noticed that if the car is in Dynamic when you start it up, you may have to go back and forth for it to really be "Dynamic" with the higher RPM and burbles / pops.

    Interesting, Iíll have to test that out. Weird that you would have to toggle back and forth.

    I would assume they would do that to heat the car up properly/not damage the engine and also so you don't red line the engine while its cold. We also have Dynamic Red Lines (if you have Virtual Cockpit) so when the engine is cold the red line is lower, usually around 5500 instead of 6500. If you're in warmer climates you probably wont see this happening unless its a fairly cold day. I always make sure my car atleast drops down to 6500 before driving off and for it to be at operating temp before putting the transmission in S.
