    It's the nature of the sport mode. It's kind of self explanatory. Be mindful that the car is essentially in eco mode until you press that or the sport plus button.

    New β€˜toys’ just arrived to keep me busy this wknd. really looking forward to feeling the difference with the slotted Sebro discs and Brembo sport pads vs drilled sebro discs and textar pads I’ve used the previous 3 years, especially at Silverstone next month 🏎πŸ€ͺ the Brembo pads look so shiny-silver cool and are so beautifully packaged that I may not fit them at, rather I’ll just display them on the rear passenger shelf instead.... 🀩😁

    Not sure if you can get them other than through OPC. Spyder springs are slightly different I believe.

    I’ve had my 987.1 S for just over 2 years with all the extras. I find the PASM when on is a little too hard on the 19” wheels and the sport button does make a little difference. I only use the car at weekends and was driving once a week to work (50 miles round trip) before C-19 kicked in. Mine did suffer from bore wear and had a complete engine rebuild including steel liners so will not suffer again. Got the car back just before lockdown so took ages to run in. But now done and had oil and filter changed. I must say she is a different car. Much more responsive and sounds amazing. Covered over 2000 miles with a permanent smile and no oil usage! My everyday car has hardly seen the road!
