well well well i will ask the same question
i got the point of the changing gears faster
but i think ,if alfa puts a seperate button just for this , i got the right questioning the choice of slow gear changes
think of two cars , one is engaged with sport button pressed , one is not
are there any more fuel consumption etc. ?
or the difference in fuel consumption only depends on the behaviour or the driver , (i mean ,the driver (to get the benefit of sport button) drives at high revs etc.)
but again i'm locked at the point the necessity of it ?
i think the 156/147's automatic sport mode switch was more logical ,instead of a seperate button
but visually ,it's nice , "girl , just press that button , we will reach mach2"
