    Possibly a hybrid powertrain, like in latest Panamera. If that's the case, then it won't be any slower, than your S8.
    Otherwise - yea, same chassis, pretty much.

    Hi!

    Can do a file for you, if you find a way to flash it.
    BDM is a cheapest (& easiest) option, but it requires you to open the ECUs.

    PM me for more info.

    Yeah.
    Also known as "AMAX" mode. Full power shifts.
    Think it's enough to just floor both pedals (after doing the ritual with ESP etc DHall1 mentioned), then let go of the brake pedal.

    Oh, you can also recode the cluster to turn off reception of CAN messages from TCU.
    It was 1025 to 1024 or something, I might recall that wrong. VCDS will show you a hint.
