: Difference between S and "Sport/Sport+"?

Anyone answer this question for me? In transmission terms, what is the difference between S (shift auto-stick to left), and "Sport/Sport+" modes.

Their does appear to be a difference, as i've discovered S AND Sport mode combined provides an even more aggressive transmission. If i maintain steady steed, and shift to S, the engine revs up and downs-a gear - if i then press sport, it does it again, all whilst maintaining the same speed.

So what is "S" and what does Sport do differently?

Sorry if that makes no sense!
