Loosens up the gas pedal sensitivity and bleeds boost off almost completely, I believe 3psi is max with eco

Shift points on trans are also moved way up. You’ll start in 2nd gear from a stop.

Well - we finally did our first road trip in the TH. Not a big one ~1000 miles (1600KM) this weekend. Here are our my initial thoughts:

- No comments on power / performance, we all know about that...

- Very comfortable ride given the track oriented suspension. I'm still trying to figure out if the shocks are adjustable between modes like my C7. I'm sure the answers are here with a search.

- Not bad mileage (22mpg) mostly highway. Obviously didn't purchase her for mileage but I expected worse.

- As the auto journalists have pointed out many times, the steering is way too light. It needs to be stiffened up by about 35 - 40% like my X5. This is not connected to driver mode for sure. While I'm still getting acquainted with her, it seemed like anytime I sniffed or navigated the middle display, I'd sway back and forth on the road. I'll get used to it.

- ACC (auto cruise control): works pretty good when there isn't a lot of heavy traffic. When cars are shifting in and out of lanes with a lot with traffic (in our city we have it bad until you get 60 mi out), the TH punches it and brakes a lot to accommodate making for a jerky ride. No biggie given the torque.

- Exhaust is pretty quite. Nice for a long ride but would be great to have active exhaust dampening. Maybe aftermarket in the future.

- 8th gear should be lower for MPG. The revs were too high at 70 MPH.

- I parked next to a Urus in the parking garage in Montreal. While it's a beautiful exotic beast, I couldn't help but think I'd give you a serious run for your money.. ha ha .

- Seats are comfortable and provide great support. The cooled / vented option could provide a bit more airflow.

All in all, I have no major complaints and lots of gratitude towards her for what she is. No regrets making the purchase.

Nice, thanks for the information. We also plan to have our first road trip at the end of September because my wife and I love autumn, and it would be really cool to spend some days in the forest. We don’t have a large car for that, but we also do not need that much equipment. Just a few backpacks and that’s it because the main thing we take with us is food. It takes most of the place. And then go the tent, sleeping bags, and some small things like 2x powerful tactic flashlights from Amazon and some additional clothing in case it becomes too cold or too wet.
