The answer is no, and it drives me nuts. I have no idea what BMW was thinking. I can understand the transmission not defaulting to sport, but I have mine programmed so just the suspension is firmer in sport mode. Just one of a long list of BMW stupid quirks that detract from such a great driving car.
