SPORT Mode...

I know that SPORT Mode changes the throttle mapping and reduces the power steering assist. However, I have also heard that it changes the thermostat so that the engine running temperature is 180deg. Does anyone know if that is true? It doesn’t seem to be the case on my car...

Yep, i have seen it happen and tracked it with my phone and onboard computer. On my JCW it dips a bit but it runs hotter.

Ah, thanks!

I have a P3 Multi-Gauge and the oil temp is usually 225-230. SPORT Mode doesn’t seem to make a difference, one way or the other...
