Default DSG peeps

Just curious:

What are your favorite driving situations to use:

DSG
Sport
Regular Drive

Just interested in what people like, when, and why!

peeps?

OK. I like the way the sport mode holds revs but like the way the normal mode doesn't downshift when you hit the gas. To me Sport mode would hold revs longer but not be so tempermental with downshifting. After it is broken in I will use Tip mode or normal mode.
Sorry about the "peeps" comment but I just couldn't resist

I've become used to using "D" for almost all situations. If I need to go fast I just floor it and the tranny will kick down just fine. If I am having fun on one of the twisty back roads around here then I'll use "S".

I like the sport mode for those spirited driving instances. As stated, it holds the revs better, quicker response. Loving it so far.
