Many of us got the ASS recode because it meant that hitting the Sport rocker was the only thing to remember to do before driving off. Without it, you need to hit ASS off and Sport on which is double the inconvenience. Sounds trivial, but it adds up especially if you take numerous short trips each day.

Keep in mind that Comfort is also the anti-nausea mode. Sport gives you rocket-like blasting power which can make wife/kids seasick, especially in traffic. Makes the accelerator a hair-trigger, takes no effort to launch. A great feature when driving solo, with passengers, different story.


sounds good to me. Another reason why I love the manual transmission, you can shift when you want.

Unlike you wife, mine loves cars and I have to remind her when we get this ride she needs to take it easy. Hell she is as excited as I am to have a manual car again. She already knows about the different settings, her first comment is why do they have an eco setting on a 335i.

Damn too bad about not remembering the last setting. I think this is a mistake BMW is making, they should have it part of the drivers profile, like seat and mirror settings.
