Default New First Edition F-Pace owner

Hello, new owner here, with a new owner question I can't find sufficiently clear answer to in the manual, and from this forum most everybody here must know it.

What is the relationship between the Dynamic setting and the S position on the gear selector? From the screen, it looks like Dynamic sets the throttle, suspension, steering modes. Does the S position just allow use of the paddles, or does it do something else to any other mode? Out of Dynamic, it seems to change the shift points when in automatic....

Also, out of curiosity, are any wrinkles in the VAP pulley and tune kit for the V6S more or less worked out by now? AFR's, belt, driveability and power/torque all solid?

All I know is, when I see the "S" mode on, it tells me I'm in my "S" rocket mode.

Well, I've figured out from the manual and experimentation that in the settings you can allow use of the paddles in Drive OR Sport. In Sport, however, the tranny will not switch back to auto even if you are in one gear for awhile once you start using the paddles.

I've also figured out that switching to Sport does not affect some or perhaps any of the factors you can adjust in Dynamic. It seems so far that Sport keeps the paddles active once you start using them, and changes the shift points in full auto if you don't use the paddles, but does not do anything to the throttle or suspension. Not positive about steering yet, but I don't think so....
