Gear display & shift up indicator on/off (manual trans cars), tach sweep on/off (on startup)

S is for the tach sweep. G is for the gear display & shift up indicator.

The shift up indicator isn't the shift light, it just tells you when to shift for the best fuel economy.

G is for gravity, really a cool mode for doing stunt. You can do a lot of new things with no gravity.

S is for suction. Basically the car gives you a blowjob.

I bet you want a BRZ now.

This, and it all this is in the owners manual linked elsewhere. I think its kinda cool that you can turn on/off tach sweep, set a shift light and when in the rpm range it comes on.

S off is an abomination. Who in their right minds would turn the tach sweep off?!

I like how you can do a tach sweep while you're driving, there's a control switch on the floor by your right foot.

No, pretty sure it's just when you start the vehicle. A full sweep of the tachometer. Has nothing to do with telling you when to shift. That might be G Off.

When I think of people using S Off what I'm really thinking is F Off... J/K.
