How to configure in Sport Mode at startup?

How do you configure the 2010 750li to be in sport mode at startup?

Do you have to setup a profile? How do you setup a profile?

Thanks in advance.

I dont think its possible. Just press the sport button on the console. I agree that sport mode is how the car should be driven. The normal drive mode is to meet CAFE and emission standards IMO.

Believe it or not, it's actually annoying to hit the sport button every time you start the car.

I am pretty sure you can configure the car to be in sport mode when you start the car, but I believe you have to set it up through the profile.

Don't think its possible. The car will only maintain the "Comfort" and "Normal" setting after a restart.... not "Sport" or "Sport+"

+1...defaults back to Normal from Sport or Sport+ when you re-start.

+2. Same thing for the 6 Series and, believe it or not, M6 (not to mention that you must manually engaged the fabulous M Button whenever you want to go to "warp"!).

It looks like it is possible to configure the car to startup in Sport mode but you have to configure it in the profile. (The 6-series is different because it does not allow for a user profile).

Page 33 of the 750li Owner's Manual says:

"Personal Profile settings
The following functions and settings can be stored in a profile.
...
Dynamic Driving Control: sport program, refer to page 104.
..."

Now I have to figure out how to configure the profile...

The Sport settings are a choice of DriveTrain and Chassis, Drivetrain Only, or Chassis Only. Your setting choice is stored in your profile and key.

I do not think there is a way to have the car start up in Sport or Sport Plus mode. You can only set the way Sport mode activates when selected.

The car can not be set to start in Sport or Sport+ because of certain DOT regulations with cars and traction control (if the car has it it must be on by default when the car is started). There are also regulations about the shifting... BMW has made this as simple as possible but they still need to follow the rules.
