Default I want Rev Match set to on as the default in a M7

Hi, I have a 2017 C7 with a manual transmission.

Why can't there be a software update that allows 1) the rev-match to be on by default 2) remember my settings on or off the next time I restart the car?

Having driven OTHER cars with rev match on at all times, or need a button press to turn off, I prefer the way Chevy did it on the C7. I'd rather the car leave that choice to operate up to me first, especially with a manual transmission.

I'll ask for it when I need it. Even if it's all the time, I'd prefer that I'm the one asking for it.

Just sayin'.

If rev match were on all the time I wouldn't have an M7. I prefer to blip the throttle or not to blip the throttle if i choose. I can't even believe anyone would suggest such a thing. Manually rev matching is an intimate part of drivng a manual...

The request isn't to do away with the ability to heel/toe on your own, the request is to reverse the default. You would still be able to turn off active Rev Match

If the default is the reverse, I'm sure there'll be loud voices asking for the default to be off too.

Again, I spend the bulk of my time on BMW boards. The BMW rev match defaults to ON. You will not believe the number of people screaming for a way to program the rev-match to default to off.

Still think Chevy made the right choice.

A better option would be if it just remembered your last setting. Similar to when you set the drive mode to Tour or Sport.

I was at Spring Mountain about a month ago and they said because Nissan has a patent that includes rev match being activated when the car starts GM had to make the Corvette with it NOT activated at start up to get around Nissan's patent.
