Dave, this is exactly my point. To bad I'm experiencing with the new power and torque in winter time directly. Actually my car was fine in late summer then the crack in the cam cover didn't leave me to use the car more than like a taxi car for a couple of months and after that, still being used to slow car bang, a lot more power (almost 40% increase). And the problem is when overtaking because you also need to change the direction quickly in a left-right (or for UK right-left) maneuver.
Activated the Winter Mode while coming back home today (less than 5 Km in town driving) and the feeling was awful. Revving more but less power at the wheel, like a manual gearbox with faulty clutch. I'll probably return back to normal next days and try to train may right foot to be more gentle.
