    I read about this for my VXR whileI was waiting for it to arriv. From what I gather, it stiffems the suspension, sharpens the steering and widens the gear ratio. If you have an EDS remap, it also switched between the maps.

    The sports button only alters the throttle response unless your car is fitted with the ILS (correct me if the abbreviation is wrong) suspension, in which case it stiffens the dampers and alters the throttle response.

    I have the sports button on my 1.9 SRi.

    it changes the trottle response, steering sensitivity and if you have IDS stiffens the suspension,

    thats it....i will go get the exact quote from the manual

    Damping and steering become more direct
    and provide better contact with the road
    surfac e. The engine reacts more quickly to
    acc elerator movements.
    With Easytronic 3 and automatic
    transmission 3, shifting times are reduced
    and gearshifting occurs at a higher engine
    speed (unless cruise control is on).
