Don't know about the bump but the select shift is easy to use. If you put it in "S" and drive normal you will get brisker shifts and it will not go into 6th. If instead you hit the button either up or down it will go into manual mode. It will tell you on the panel what gear you are in and you can simply shift manually up or down. With it in manual mode you can shift into 6th. You can shift back into Drive at any time. If you want to go from manual back to Sport, you will have to shift back to Drive and then back to Sport. Piece o' cake.
