I used Comfort for overtaking. Never used Sports mode on Hwy.

At what speed does Sports mode change to 8th gear, if it does?

LOL I decided to do it for fun.. it doesnt kick in to 8th gear i think it felt as though it kept in 7th fo the most part. Also i overtake alot on the highways every chance i get to get >< for i always stick about 10 above the limit, 110 is the max on the highways to Sydney. Overtaking speed 150 Kept me awake for the 10 hour drive lol
