I also found when pressing the paddle shifters the transmission would shift super slow. Are you saying that if you were to use the stick shifter for manual shifts, the transmission shifts will be quicker?
The floor shifter seems to be a bit better, but that could be just me. In my opinion this car needs a DCS or a manual badly. The current transmission does not fit the performance of the car. Should have driven it longer before I bought it.
Just to add a tid bit that may or may not be helpful. I had someone with a newer Q50 sedan successfully install the column-mounted paddle shifters in their that wasn't prewired. It is doable there and he didn't necessarily spend a fortune. Given how the mechanical aspects of his 3.0TT low is considerably similar to the Q60 3.0TT low, there is hope for a feasible column mounted install rather than the wheel-mounted one, which I haven't found anyone that has done it successfully yet.
I guess I'm a silly guy. I knew I was buying a gentlemen's express and not a race car, but this tranny just drives me crazy. Wife's Lincoln is is better in this regard.
So yes, if they came out with a stick I would trade mine in today. The car is supremely comfortable and was the best compromise performance/comfort I could find. And don't get me start on the DAS.
I am not sure we have a consensus yet; I have seen reports of both non-Sports being wired and not being wired. Even if the wiring exists, you need an entirely new steering wheel to get the cutouts for the paddles (be extra careful with the clockspring -- those buggers love to pop out and fall apart).

So I went out to a semi-local tuning shop this morning to get a baseline run before I start making modifications but my dyno chart is really odd. Anyone know what would cause this? Can those numbers be correct with the curve looking like that?
Btw, this is an AWD RS.
Looking for opinions.

Hello everyone i just bought a used q60 around 30k miles. It has never been in a accident or had any problems. I bought it Certified pre owned. I noticed when giving it a hard acceleration when it hits around 3500-4000 rpm i can hear a squeak for a second and was wondering what it could be. I...
