    VXR button does more of all the same things as the Sport button(Throttle map, suspension, steering), plus it changes the torque biasing more towards the rear and it relaxes the stability control.

    Where I’ve felt the biggest difference in terms of handling, is If you hit the throttle hard coming out of a corner in wet conditions in Sport, the car will most likely understeer, if you do the same in VXR mode, you can provoke some tail action, but you need to be quite vigorous.

    When driving through Germany I most often put the car in sport as I found the suspension in that setting to be perfect for high speed cruise. Putting it into OPC mode (being from Denmark) made the ride quite harsh.

    Remap the car and then you'll feel the difference... It's as already said but when remapped the throttle is like a trigger.. Everything is almost instant with power delivery.
    A stock car with soft tyre pressures for day to day is barely noticed... Up the pressure to near 40psi and you'll feel the firmer suspension.
