I'm really confused because my '13 definitely remembers the last setting.

If I set it to auto and turn off the A/C, the auto light remains light. If I shut the car off when it's in that state,...

Agreed. The regular seat is very flat. Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention when I drove with the sport seats. I just remember feeling too locked in, which is something others might like.

Are you sure this isn't configurable through iDrive? If not, that would be disappointing (if not asinine). For me, the whole point of comfort access is to not have to fiddle with anything when...

I use that, but the Bluetooth does make a significant (negative) difference.

Thanks. If you configure Sport to affect the chassis only, do you know what drivetrain mode would be used when Sport is selected? I'm guessing Comfort, which would work perfectly for me.

I know these are a dumb questions , but (1) how many settings does DHP provide and (2) are they initiated separately from the driving modes (ecopro, comfort and sport)?

I also think that switching to Eco Pro while the car is auto-stopped (as opposed to while you are rolling to a stop) may prolong the auto-stop period.
