Thats about right! If somebody starts to speak in french, I'll speak french, otherwise, I'll speak in english...

If you aint fortunate enough to speak a specific language, google translate is there fir you :

After upgrading VGSG module got Christmas tree of error lights and RWD. Car seemed to shift and pulling up rpms muuuch smoother.
But of course ABS/DSC went down and it's quite unsafe on snowy roads, so I coded VGSG and everything seems fine. But AWD again.
I have a suspicion that AWD eats tons of gas. On the short commutes, my car runs only 200 miles/tank. But on the highway it's up to 400. Could you guys post your mpg just for the reference?

That's not bad.
By the way, I was thinking about ways to have "safe" switch to RWD. When I had my VGSG module unprogrammed, there were errors coming from engine, transmission and dsc. I was wondering if it would be possible to have a different "profile" for engine/tranny/dsc so they would be error free functional with AWD off.

I get well over 30MPG HWY and low-mid 20's combined HWY/town. I live up in the mountains in a small town so not much stop and go stuff.

Interesting about the VGSG module. Have not been following this thread lately.

Yep! Nobody thought about doing it...

But it's kinda like asking for brain surgery when you have a headache

Are you thinking it will break something? Because all you do is smolder the tires. Bang second and keep burning.

I need an excuse to get rid of these run flats!

I got a 4x4 warning light today while getting a little sideways.. It stopped the fun and then went off another few hundred feet down the road.

There is still more testing to be done.
