I like Sport mode because it gives that extra exhaust growl... Which brings me to my next question. Do you have M-Sport and if so, have you noticed the car is a little louder? Or is that just me?
No M sport here... I noticed the exhaust valves opens and closes more often, even on normal mode. One thing this mod make me wonder, a 650 x drive w/ M package with Dinan vs M6...tough call ain't it? Hydraulic drive and 4 wheels to deal with all the torque for 30 k less with far better insurance premiums

Ill be searching for a new exhaust anyway. Contenders are eisenmann, gthaus and maybe oem M muffler (not sure if it fits). The former has a very nice growl...
X5 5.0 MY12, M package, black sapphire
650i vert, MY12, Blue/ivory, to be modded soon...
Gone: 997.2 modded, 987s (not forgotten ), MB C55 amg, Passat W8, Cayenne MY 08
