Seems you couldnt sleep Yimn??Got up early for a blast?Ive found the steering is good in normal mode,but i know what you mean.Thats why i switch to sport/sport as soon as possible.I only use standard mode for round town at low speeds,even on dual carriage ways i rarely use standard mode,but thats just my preferance.New to the forum. Just picked up my car from Rybrook today. Got a question re centering force. It seems to me the steering is very light without much centering force ESP in normal mode. Is that how u guys feel as well or maybe it takes some getting used to. Thx
Yimn. The batteries need to be in your wallet!Thanks Andy. Can't figure out how to upload pic with iPad. Will do so when got access to computer. Another major difference I noticed is that the brake paddle is very hard compared to cars like 458 Sls and gt3rs. It takes a lot of effort to depress the brake initially. Btw a little drama last night at the Birmingham airport. After locking the car, can't open the door or started thecar again. Called technical assistance and they came in an hour and changed the battery in my key fob. Can't believe the batteryis dead after half day of use I hope it never happens again. Will carry a pack of battery with me in the car just in case.
Good point Squirrel,but are the dealerships showing this method to new customers,did you know this Ymin?? Its no good reading the handbook if its looked in the carI guess you could use the emergency physical key to get in the car though...
maybe all owners should all have a spare battery with them if this could happen!
What's the battery model number?
I find the best way is to close the door to within 6 inches,that way you have taken the pressure out of the hydralic arm so that the force required is at a minimum,also there is less compression of the air ,then a quick flick of the wrist is enough,after a while you will know the weight you will need,then you will get it everytime.
I picked up mine yesterday (HAPPY New Year!) and was given the dead battery door opening walk through as part of my dealer's delivery walk through. I'm going to be making copies of that part of the manual for my garage!Good point Squirrel,but are the dealerships showing this method to new customers,did you know this Ymin??

Saw you leaving in the car nice colour combo I was there to finish coating the orange car and the grey car, to open the door manually looks a nightmare and if the window does not drop when you turn the key the window will smash. The locks are a bit of a nightmare and hit and miss some are not to bad but others are tight, I've tried to adjust the locks on the demo car and moving the latch on the door only moves the panel levels. So this means the locks are to blame and very tight, I think they should of put soft close on for the sake of a tiny bit of weight and I heard a owner pulled the handle off in the car trying to shut it.
Congratulations. Is yours a US, UK or European delivery?I picked up mine yesterday (HAPPY New Year!) and was given the dead battery door opening walk through as part of my dealer's delivery walk through. I'm going to be making copies of that part of the manual for my garage!
I was also told that you shouldn't leave the fob in range of the car for extended periods while it is parked, particularly if it isn't put to sleep. Apparently the car and fob will continue to communicate, which could kill the fob battery much faster. I wouldn't think that would be in a day, though.
