Nameless is an unknown quantity at this point
I was wondering which SMG mode most people use? A1-5 vs. S1-6?? And what is the main difference between S1-4?? I don't really notice that much of a difference in the shift speed...

I'm always in S5 or S6. I notice a huge difference even from 5 to 4. S1 is just a setting I use if I have coffee in the car... :P

Right now, no mode. Car's in storage for the winter
Usually, S5 mode for everyday driving in the city and highway, and S6 + Sport mode for having fun.

Agree with the above that modes 1-4 are pretty slow to shift and unless you're having traction problems or learning the car in the first few days / trying to resist not gunning it while you're breaking in the engine, I'm sure that most people that bought the ///M in the first place wouldn't bother with these.
