    Start in 1st?

    Ok, new bie here. Brother just got a new S (with the Panorama roof wooh hoo!), and we are trying to figure out if there is a way to get it to start in 1st gear all the time, as opposed to 2nd. Seems like the only way to get into first is to floor the hell out of it, or use the tip shifting and downshift into first. Is there a way to change this?

    Why would you want the car to start in 1st? This doesn't "cure" the throttle lag at all.

    Re: Start in 1st?

    turn PSM off

    Re: Start in 1st?

    I have excellent response on my CT when I turn off the PSM. It starts in first and revs higher through the shifts which means even worse gas milage. The throttle lag is something you wouldn't think would be an issue in this caliber of car but it is in mine, however it seems to be minimized with spirited PSM-off driving

    Re: Start in 1st?

    The car seems more peppy and responsive in all gears with the PSM off. I suppose its still safe to drive in the city without PSM activated within city speed limits especially if one needs better throttle response driving in and out of traffic.
