E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

DS + Sport mode

Anyone try this one out? (gearbox in manual mode - DS and sport button ON). Feels way better to me then plain sport mode + D or regular DS with sport off. It feels like the car gained another 20 horses or so, responds a little quicker and seems to rev higher. Just discovered this one yesterday and had quite a shock when i put my foot down

It's getting better and better with each day that passes. Now i gotta find some wide open space to play without DSC and with the DTC on.

I thought that DS just put the gearbox into "Sport" whereas the Sport button does that, but also changes the damper settings and throttle response times. Then again, that could just be a mental thing - and the buttons don't actually do anything...

Nope, the car is more "lazy" in Sport + D and Sport Off + DS then Sport ON + DS

The Sport button on the center console does change the throttle response "sensitivity". If I can remember correctly, a software tuner at ESS Tuning of Norway said that it changed (quickened) the response time by 8% or so. For those of you that have a manual 6-speed you might be interested in knowing that by activating this button it cures "some" of the problems of the CDV on our manual cars. So, for those of you thinking of deleting the CDV, try activating the Sport button first it might be good enough for you???
