As 4 Point 0 alludes, not all of the data collected by the factory PASM sensors is used, nor is it used to its full extent. An example of this is the ride height sensor data is filtered by the...

If I recall reading this correctly, there are louvers that close off some of the airflow to the front radiators in Normal mode to reduce drag, and that reduced airflow increases the oil temperature....

I too believe that this is the case and it seems to be a common "affliction" of the TTS. I first saw it on mine when the car was brand new and read comments that it is windshield washer fluid. It's...

The most obvious change is that the ride in Normal mode is "softer". Not wallowy but more like say a Panamara or other sport sedan. But at the same time there's little / no body roll in cornering or...

It's my understanding that the 991.1 did not use the CAN bus for FAL or Sunroof so there never was an issue with conflicting data. The issue only arose with the advent of the 991.2. (An issue which...
