Used D for the most part. Used S yesterday and did notice difference in shift points. Liked my exhaust better.

Yeah... before the Range AFM Disable device came along, I ran in Sport mode nearly all the time.

I drive mine mostly in M cause I like the feel of the tap shift.

I liked using S on my SS almost all the time but on my ZL1 I only use it when im opening it up (which I do quite often) because it holds gears way too long , I found the SS up shifted alot quicker when letting off the gas where the ZL1 will hold lower gears too long to be comfortable in normal driving

Your MPGs are better on trips when you use the paddles? Do you tap by RPMs or just by feel? Interesting.
