Easy/quick question for those in the know:

The three buttons on the e-gear (Sport, Auto, ????) , what does the button on the right do?


(looks like it's TC, but the ESP button is on the row of buttons under the infotainment screen)

I know it's the 'corsa' button on later (LP?) models, but what is it on the earlier e-gear models?

Locks all four wheels at up to 150mph if you see the fuzz.

Where is the "Corsa" button.

You can get those buttons refurbed for £100-200 and shiny them up.

On mine, it activates Space Invaders on the screen. Best option on the list, after the spare wheel obviously.

From what I understand of how the e-gear works, sounds like the best button to press if you want to prematurely wear out the clutch. hehe

Whilst I've got the attention of the assembled experts, what about the button immediately to the right of the wing mirror adjust?

(I'm assuming the two on the left are open/close the roof on spyders, and the one far right is nose lift)

As they say, if all else fails, read the instructions.

Super helpful - thanks.

If you can provide the link to the PDF of the Gallardo handbook, that'd be great.

The slippery road button not only starts in second gear, but will also change up gears in auto mode much lower down the rev range. It might even force a gear change at lower revs even in manual mode too and override the paddles.
