I then thought somebody on here said that in sport mode there are more grill flaps open which means it could take longer to warm up. !!

I have noticed that the oil heats up more quickly when in Normal mode, and to a higher temp, compared to Sport mode. When warmed, the oil in Sport mode hovers around 90 degrees in regular driving, whereas the oil temp in Normal mode seems to settle about 10 degrees higher.

Thanks for all of the replies.

I hadn’t realised the suspension settings changed the throttle response and engine map… I’ve been driving with the car in low height, sports+ suspension and normal driving mode and I can’t say I’ve felt any difference. It’s only when I change the sports chrono settings to individual/sports/sports+ that I really stir the beast!! 😂
