post 1200 question

I got my 1200 done recently and started to drive the car like it was meant to be driven. I actually floored it for the first time and it scared the hell out of me. Problem is, it seems really sluggish in auto mode after driving it like that for a few days, it's almost as if the accelerator feels non responsive like my wife's volvo. Is this a function of using the m mode full out and going back to a more sensible setting, or is there more to it?

I dont know why they didnt just leave it on in sport plus all the time. its like 2 different cars with it on and off.

agreed. the m button with those settings really gets the car moving.
