SPORT+ automatically engages the SPORT chassis and engine settings, but it also activates DTC, which allows for more dynamic, rear oriented power control; up to 90% of the power can be transferred to the rear wheels. DTC mode also allows for greater traction on loose surfaces, such as when stuck in snow, ice, sand, or mud
Fjrmann, why do you think they enable DTC in Sports+ mode and how does the car feel when driving in that mode compared to regular Sport Mode? Is DTC the only difference from Sports to Sports+ mode, or are the other settings changed as well? Thanks.

BTW, I have a 2007 MSport X3 and am in the process of negotiating/ordering on a 2014 MSport.
