I use Normal the great majority (95%) of the time. When I change to Sport, I do notice the tighter suspension. Tried Sport+ only feel what it was like. Never use it. When I go to Comfort I don't notice a difference. Your experience?

use normal most of the time as well. Ive never used sport plus except for a few secs to see what it was like. I would love if there was a setting where the throttle response was in sport and the suspension in normal as the default. I do notice in difference in comfort. I actually think its pretty dramatic. If im on a bumpy road and i switch to comfort from normal, the bumps smooth out.

I've had much the same experience. I use NORMAL mode most of the time, although I think I prefer SPORT (with its quicker repsonse) for both city driving and winding roads. As do you, I use COMPORT to smooth out the ride somewhat on a bumpy road surface (very useful in view of the hard ride of the 20" Goodyear Excellence performance ROF's). I have not used SPORT+ to this point.

Also, can anyone confirm that Intregal Active Steering is only operative in SPORT and NORMAL modes?
