"Off" on flappy paddle

Postby Bops » Fri Jun 01, 2018 9:30 am

Hi all, does anyone know what the "Off" marking on the + flappy paddle does? I had this on my previous car as well & have no idea what it's supposed to turn off.

Cheers,
Bops

So let's say your in automatic drive mode and you want to overtake, you flick down on the downshift paddle and it puts it into manual mode for 30 seconds. If you want to go back to auto quicker than 30 seconds you can hold down the upshift for 2-3 seconds and it will go back into auto.

Ahh ... ok. Shall give that a try. I used to shift the gear selector across to manual & back to auto but this sounds a lot nicer.

Thanks for that :)

To be honest that's what I do , just stick it in manual , however if it's a spur of the moment over take (for whatever reason) then you can just flick the paddle down a gear or two.

Good to know I guess.
