    I usually cruise around town without getting much attention (Pitch Black Challenger, which is arguably the fastest color ;) ). Most of my cruising was during the break in period and I have been running in "street mode".

    Now that the break in period is over, I have been switching between "street" and "sport mode". The car is definitely more fun to drive in "sport" mode.

    While in "sport" mode, I have seen people in cars taking pictures, people in crosswalks stopping and gawking and I even had two guys ask me to race :D (nothing to brag about but I spanked both of them).

    I can feel and hear the difference in the car between these two modes. Is there that much of a difference outside the car to explain the change in people's reactions?

    sport mode all day long. It's the transmission that needs the sport mode. Much louder, holds the gears longer and downshifts like a mofo (A8). I hate street transmission, anymore it feels like a V6 when in street transmission.

    Exhaust doesn't change in sport mode, but with the trans keeping the revs higher it is louder.
