I have driven my car enough to determine which setting I like for all-around driving, and that setting is Sport. I will say that I am still intoxicated with the power, I love the immediate kick in the pants you get in Sport. Eventually this car will get me into some trouble.

My car is a DD around town for errands and such, therefore it's 95% Tour. I like tearing away from stoplights and have people NOT look at me....

Sport, manually shifting the automatic when in town.

you don't want to know, it will incite paranoia here.....

about 14......

again, this is 100% no interstate, and 100% stoplight to stoplight urban driving....

It would be interesting to know if that would change if you used SPORT mode? I like Sport mode because it opens up the exhaust valves and gives it that deep rumble and I know I can in my settings keep it open all the time but at this time I like it to be in a quiet mode at times and then that deep growl at other times when I stomp on it. Something like being a sleeper and then waking up to take a swipe at my predator with a growl ;)

the sport mode makes the pedal "shorter" meaning more repsonse....around town it can jerk the car on pedal application...I would guess very little diff in sport and tour mpg, if anything sport would be less, as you are hotshoeing it more...

I've noticed this. Good point.

I read somewhere that the auto transmission will always start in 1st gear in Sport. In Touring it often starts in 2nd based upon the amount of throttle. This is what I read so don't bash me if it is not true. But it makes sense for fuel economy.

Mine is set on Sport. Haven't tried the others.

I also have the engine sound management off.

Coming from a z51 c6 with Borla stingers, I think I'm being very critical of everything, wondering if Sport is tight enough and if the NPP is loud enough........Yall reassure me!!!
