I think that's what you're asking[/QUOTE

I would also like to add, once you touch the tap shifters in M- Sport mode (it switches you over to manual mode). You must now shift the car yourself until you move the shifter back up to D (regular drive).

When I'm done using the paddle shifters, I move the shifter quickly up to D and then back to M (Sport mode). I pretty much use M (Sport mode) for most of my daily driving. I rarely use the paddle shifters. But sometimes the paddel shifters are fun to play with. I also like using the paddle shifters when I want to hold first gear when rolling slowly off the line.

And make sure you time the shifts properly when using the paddle shifters. There's a slight delay on the shifts so you can end up hitting the fuel cut off/redline if you're not paying close attention to your rpms.
You know you don't have to shift from M to D to get out of the paddle shift setting. Just hold the + shifter for a few seconds and it will revert back to M Auto
