Welcome to the BW Forum...Please complete your BW PROFILE - Vehicle YR/Model and Location.

To answer your questions about these W & S Modes,

W = Wet/Winter Mode - What it does; Tranny starts on 2nd gear
S = Standard Mode - Whats it does; tranny starts on 1st gear; regular driving

All these info. are in your owner's manual.

Cheers,
JOE55

I paid my mortgage (actually paid extra on it) and I have perfect credit... thanks for asking.

Now on to the "real" question... every car in the world comes with an owners manual... the manual should stay with the car... if one does not have an owners manual, obtain one online or purchase one from the dealer.

I do not think that because we are American that it makes any difference... we are not jerks or condescending, just pointing out the obvious.
