haha, nice, yes I definitely like that they included this.

I would likely use the feature coming from a stop turning left (and now that i think about it...probably turning right as well).

Having to have my hand on the upshift paddle in the 12 o'clock (or even worse 11 or 10 o'clock) position while turning left has always been awkward for me, much rather have one hand on the wheel and the other shifting.

Now I just have to buy one to see how I like it.

Thanks for the suggestion - I've added those to the list.

As soon as we get confirmation of tire production, I'll add that, too!

Can you go into manual mode on the fly with the flick of the paddles like in the 5th gen, without actually moving the shifter to manual mode?
