The computer actually does that for you already...
I think I remember reading about electronic throttle control on this car (or am I remembering the Audi brochure). Does the IS have this and if so does anyone know how it works. I have noticed that even with the key off, the accelerator pedal moves the throttle. I noticed this because I thought the cable looked loose at the throttle body so I was curious how much pedal movement was needed to take up the slack (turns out that it wasn't much).
Originally posted by ISFAN: IS 300 does have a drive by wire throttle. When I took my car in for the 1k check up the service rep advised me that was one of the reason I was feeling the hesitation somewhat.
Cool. The reason I asked is because when I was test driving the IS, I was playing with the e-shift while the pedal was to the metal, and it jerked a bit when I upshifted. I've been a little afraid of doing it with my own car.
I have also noticed when I am in the e-shift mode and really get on the gas, sometimes the car shifts by itself anyway.
There have also been times where I would get close to red line and then i would hit the button and the car would not shift, or delay for some time and I would have to let off the gas. You really need to be paying attention while in that mode.

I just bought a 2002 SportCross. I love the car as it is, but I'm always looking for improvements to my cars. I was wondering if anyone knew of any must-do mods (whether aesthetic or performance mods).
For example, I spent about $30 changing the interior lights on my Corvette to LEDs, and I...
