So after finally getting the car on the road again after a weird fuel delivery issue, i've noticed a few more things.
If i drive it in D it has a slight bog-down at the beginning of 3rd gear. Doesn't matter if it's in Power or Econ, same sluggishness but Power mode just gets out of it sooner and stronger. It doesn't last long and it isn't prominent but i do notice it. If i'm into the pedal and the upshift point is in the low 5k range it's not quite as noticeable. If i'm partially into the pedal and upshift is in the low 4k range... it will drop 300-400 rpms and then regain that a few moments later. The car is still increasing speed ever so slightly, but this bog is confusing a little bit.
Now if i do all this counter-testing in S, it's almost not even there anymore.
Accumulators, you think? 2-4 band adjustment maybe? Anyway i'm noticing that 3rd is the most fickle of forward gears, 1,2, and D are more consistent throughout any range of driving habits.
I believe in reincarnation... just the other day i saw an old lady turn into a driveway.
