    Low gear lull

    I'm wondering if anyone else is noticing this. When driven under light to moderate throttle when the car shifts to the next gear it kind of bogs down during the shift. Not only does it sound bad because it literally makes this deep drone sound but the car actually hesitates so your head tips forward a bit. It's like the rpms need to be higher going into the next gear. I'm no engineer but it's rather annoying and seems like it's a computer issue.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Are you in the sport or track mode?

    Re: Low gear lull

    Yes, I'm in sport mode when this happens.
    When I give it a lot of throttle the car seriously bogs and searches for a gear.
    Very annoying and I hope for a software update to cure this.
