    s button

    Can anyone confirm if the sport button on the B7 RS4 raises the revs from 7k to 8250?

    Cheers

    The S button has no effect on the rev limiter.

    When the oil temperature is less than 60 Celsius the rev limiter is set to 7000rpm, when the oil temperature reaches 60 Celsius the rev limiter is raised to 8250rpm - whether you are in S mode or not.

    Does anyone know if it is actually electronically limited to 7000rpm until the oil temperature gets up to over 60 Celsius or does it just give you the warning not to do it as going above those revs on a coldish engine could be bad news!!! :-)
