    Has anyone used one of these for caravan towing, and if so is standard mode better than comfort mode whilst towing?.
    Thanks in advance

    I tow a 1400Kg caravan with my 220 usually in 's' mode but if I forget it seems to cope with it all right.:D

    I would suggest trying tip on long coastdowns to prevent warping your brake discs.
