    Hi guys,
    Just bought a Leon FR DSG and am wondering if the light strips are supposed to turn red whenever you go to sport mode? When I select it from the console, they do go red, but when I nudge the stick down into sport, they stay white, though the gears display S4 or whatever.
    So it does go into sport mode but the light stays white...would be ace if it went red using that function as well as the console mode selection. Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Will

    That's tottaly normal, knocking the gear stick into sport only puts the gearbox into sport mode. The lights only change to red if you change the mode on the dash switch as it changes everything, tightens the steering and makes the accelerator pedal responce sharper.

    Thanks for the response! That's a shame, I will only really use sport for overtaking I imagine. Maybe sometimes I'll put it in sport from the console for some good bits of road...but shame it won't go red from the stick for an overtake!
    Ohh well.
    Thanks :)
