Re the D and S mode on the Powershift transmission. I always use S mode when in city driving, as I find the transmission to be more responsive (quicker).
Also S mode in town yields much better creep mode in stop and slow traffic, plus eliminates gear searching, so no being in the wrong gear when you need to move quickly.
In D mode I only use when on the highway.
