You've got to be a complete stop to enter "sport" mode on any of the newer VW cars. It should be locked out the rest of the time.

What does the M mean on the 2004 Acura RL shifter?

Someone can probably explain this better than I can, but it means "Manual". Your car is probably tiptronic which means it's automatic but you can put it in "m" and should be able to shift with the center console shifter or you might have paddle shifters on your steering wheel (probably not though). Either way, you can shift up or down by using no clutch. It's really fun. Try it out one day when you're not on the freeway or in traffic by lots of people. ;)
