I'm in Comfort mode 99% of the time. (Eco pro not worth the small savings, sport mode on those rare occasions when there's a good road without snow or ice.)

Seat Heaters slow to warm up

The seat heaters in my 2014 335GT seem to take several minutes before they start warming. This is compared to my previous 2007 328 and my wife's 2009 335 - the older cars seats start warming almost...

How is it more complicated? Beyond the "turn it on" step. I think I did prefer the E90 stalk. But the F30 cruise (in my F34 specifically) works the same way, just different buttons to control it.

Sport button in the E46 M3 is throttle response only. Nothing to do with the transmission. (SMG transmission in the M3 has several different settings, but that's a completely different animal.)
