Sports Exhaust System
Switching on and off

  • The sports exhaust system can be switched on and off when the ignition is switched on using button A.
    When the sports exhaust system is switched on, the light-emitting diode in the button lights up.

Parking Brake
Parking brake force is mechanically transferred to the rear wheels by means of cables.

  • Use the parking brake only after the vehicle has come to a full stop.

Setting the parking brake

  • Pull the lever all the way up (arrow).
    With the ignition on, the parking brake warning lights in the instrument panel and on-board computer will come on if the lever is even slightly raised. A firm pull upward is required to properly engage the parking brake.
    If the brake is not fully set, the vehicle may roll without control.
  • Move the selector lever to "P" (PDK) or move the gearshift lever to reverse or first gear (Manual transmission).
  • Before exiting the vehicle, make sure that the parking brake is fully set and the vehicle is not moving at all.

Rolling Vehicle

A partially engaged parking brake may allow the vehicle to roll, causing serious personal injury or death to any person in its path.

  • Engage the parking brake fully.

Releasing the parking brake

  • Pull the lever slightly up as you depress the release button, and then push the lever all the way down.
