    Automatic Gear Shift Display????

    Hi all, need advise.

    Anyway to get the cluster screen to display the gear I'm in during automatic mode? My reason:-

    if I want to do the quickest acceleration while the car is already cruising, I would shift to DS mode to standby a gear drop. But when I do shift to DS mode, screen doesn't display the current gear I'm in. I am hoping that there is some way to display it so I can make the best decision as to how many gears I should drop to obtain the maximum pull and without over-rev'ing.

    Any advise?

    i do not think its possible. its upon pushing the peddles on ur steering wheel does it show the gear u r in. but by doing so u would have shifted up or down depending on which button u pushed. to display gear permantly will require u to go to manual mode.
