This may sound crazy.. but can you simply just run premium fuel? I thought the vehicle had to be "built for that"?

To whomever said drive it more aggressively, that tends to do the trick.

I noticed the "S" on the shifter. What exactly is that? I heard it's "Sport" mode and I also heard it's a manual shift. How exactly do you use it? What is it's purpose?
