That's for checking... I wa slaying with it today also just to see if I was out to lunch...

Hereis what I noticed
At idle, and car not moving threes no difference I can detect.
When the car is moving and I switch back and forth there is a difference I can feel, but it takes about 2 seconds for the steering to firm up. It's not dramatic just a little stiffer, enough to notice.

And once again, when the car slows down the resistance seems to reduce and starts to feel the same as comfort mode the slower it goes.

I could be completely imagining this... But it's so convincing when I try it. I asked a passenger to drive and see, and they said the same, subtle but there...

I'm wondering if there is even mechanical stuff to allow for this?

Either way the question was to see if the steering retained its feel from sport when in comfort mode, which was answered as yes it does... So at leader know what to expect there...
