No Shift Light in S Mode?

Hi guys, can someone tell me at what rpm do I start seeing shift light? I have turned shift light on according to the menu but I still don't see it. Thanks in advance.

The lights are not rpm dependent, they are rate of rpm increase dependent. However in first gear you will see them start to come on in the high 6K rpm under full throttle. The rpm required for the first lights to illuminate will increase as the gears increase because the rate of rpm increase is slower.

I guess your car is no longer in "ordered" status.

I think you are trying to say that they are dependent both on rpm and rate of change of rpm, right?

Yes, I knew I wrote that poorly but was too lazy to change it.

Thank You skierman64 and swamp2. You guys are always helpful. I just got the car last Thursday and try not to go over 5500rpm as stated on that big sticker on my windshield. I ask my CA and he went, "What shift lights? I don't think your car comes with any."
