Sport mode is the option under "D". Just shift one more down.

Looks like he drives L99, moved the shifter down to M, you will see S on the DIC or HUD, thats the sport mode, It's only manual if you use the paddle shifters.

And in Sport Mode (Automatic) your transmission has different shift points. It stays in gears 1 thru 5 a little longer allowing a little more umph in acceleration. Try it. It's fun.

To turn the nannies off you have to hold the traction control button for about 10 sec until both lights come on
