Maybe you do turn off the DSC, just to how the car handles without it (something I'd never do on public roads). No fear of tickets, but is anyone's insurance okay with them tracking their car...?
Couldn't have said it better myself. The only way to really understand the potential of the car is to track it. And once you understand what it's capable of and how to do it, you can use your mind to gage how spirited you drive in the every day.

The fact that we drive a high performance auto does not mean, nor should we be encouraged, to drive it balls to the wall on the public streets.

Stop your preaching we are all old enough to know better and the consequences.

i had the same issue with mine, which was one of the contributing factors why I sold it. I did lots of normal driving and you have to rev the hell out of it to really enjoy it. I loved the hell out of the car, but never really got to enjoy it's full potential enough. Now with forced induction everyday driving is more exciting... and better mpgs
