ok try this ..

The safe way-
* * * * * * * * * * *Choose a *bad patch of road.. and drive the vehicle over this patch in convinence/comfort mode ( both red lights off)
now drive over the same patch in sport 2 mode ( both red lights on) u should get a rougher ride..

The team-bhp way * *-
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *(suspension in convenience mode) choose a turn and take the turn a little aggresively.. keep a note on the body roll.. now put the suspension in sport 2 mode(both lights on) and take the turn again at nearly the same speed.. ur supposed to get *less body roll.. now

if u still dont notice a difference then there's something not right.. coz thats what its supposed to do.. make the air suspension suspension stiff and hard..

Hey S350L,

I wouldnt ask the dealer to tune it to min 93octane as that is just too risky in indian conditions! (see what happened to sawan's lancer...similar damage could occur with bad fuel).

As kinetic said, sports mode will stiffen the suspension and give more agressive shifts, but being an S the ride quality will still be nowhere near harsh!
Dont u have a manual that will give u the exact info??

cya

Also keep in mind what Domnic told us about the entire RON and MON thing. Apparently Indian fuel companies use RON to display their octane...translated by Dom "Our 93 Octane is actually 87 Octane"

Dont mess with the Ssss

Actually some system hackers have managed to modify the navigation system (atleast in the BMWs) to play dvd movies!!
