Evening all ...
Long day in the 'office' today - still alive as the students didn't get the better of me ..!!
Quick Q to the OP (I've just got your PM by the way)
Can you shift gears using the left / right action on the gear shift ..? You can't really change the speed of the shifts with the 7G box, though resetting the adaptive stuff does make it feel lively again .... depending on where your car has been serviced, it may have had the gearbox software update done (I seem to remember reading that there was one for the 7g boxes, but not sure for what models / years it was for)
The CSM button is purely cosmetic, once the coding has been carried out, and the coding needs to be changed in the Central Gateway (CGW) & Electronic Selector Module (ESM) to enable the shift buttons / paddles on the steering wheel.
The main dealer probably won't touch this, so your local Indy will be your best bet - it's about a 15 minute job at the most to hook up to DAS and change / save the settings ...
It's not a DIY job though ....unless you have access to DAS
Anyone in the Northants area that can recommend an good Indy thats local ..?
Not the 'Probie' anymore..!
