Steering wheel, and excessive revving on start

https://imgur.com/a/wuwkSfu (Excessive revving) was told this is "Normal" when I emailed the video to a service tech. It is not normal.



I've had the car for three months and the alcantara is already starting to wear. Any suggestions on cleaning?

Your Alcantara looks like you've been cleaning this with metal brush )))))

The wear seems a little excessive, are you wearing rings on your left hand and scraping against the alcantara?

OP has it sport + .. thus normal. If it starts on comfort mode, then itís around 1500rpm

does the MY '19 retain "mode" selection between drives or is it only in sport+ because OP was already fiddling with the car here? MY '18 defaults to comfort...

Donít know. Only those with 19 can say if the default mode is comfort every time the car is started

It defaults to comfort. I press the start button without pressing the brake, switch to S+, then start.

No rings. Really don't understand it.

It's normal to shoot up to 2500, sometimes 3500 RPM's randomly just because I start it in S+?

I tried mine out a bunch of times at s+ on (warmed up) start, it goes to 2500 rpm ... not 3500 rpm at all.

That's the problem. It only sometimes goes 3000-3500. Again this always happens randomly. Sometimes it starts normally. I don't think it should stay revving for 3-5 seconds. Just doesn't seem normal.

If thatís the case, perhaps software update is your first start

Or starting in C and moving to S+ when the oil temp is no longer showing blue.

I've tried to take a picture of my wheel and seems like it looks like the same on a picture )))))) But in real life much better.

Alcantara steering wheel is not the best thing I've ever had in my cars, looking great but need to be cleaned up twice per month at least...
