Making Sport Mode the Default setting?

Has anyone figured out how to make Sport Mode the default suspension setting upon start up in an F10?

+1 I am interested also! Have been looking for this setting in all of my CAFD. Unfortunately, I am very bad at translating German.

It has been searched for high and low, and has never been found. I would not hold my breath waiting for its discovery.

Maybe there would be a remember setting if it works that way in some country... but if it doesn't exist anywhere in the world then there would be no setting to change.

Mine remembers when I set it to Comfort mode! But nothing else. So, there must be something there telling it it's in Comfort mode which puts it back in Comfort mode when the car is turned back on.

The default behavior is Normal that can also remember it's last setting if it was Comfort or for newer cars it's Comfort that can also remember it's last setting if it was Comfort +.

This can be overridden by coding EcoPRO as the default. There is no option though to override it with Sport or Sport+ as the default.

I wish!
Sport should be the default for "The Ultimate Driving Machine". Only been in my Bimmer for a month but it seems like normal/comfort is hamstringing the car.

I have a 1992 525i. And I'm wondering why when I drop it in "3" for the sport mode it just revs but does not move?

Isn't that '3' meant for forcing your automatic transmission into the 3rd gear?

No it for sport mode. Their is a switch labeled "A,M" that makes the car select 3rd it's like a pull away switch

Had an update to the latest software yesterday and it looks like there are some new options:

BDC Body / 3221 PfFesMaster, 11 FesLastFunctionInterval
nicht_aktiv = 00
Comment = falls Fahrzeug kürzer abgestellt: LastFunction; ansonsten: FesInitMode; Wert 0: nie LastFunction; Wert 255: immer LastFunction
OPTIONS
nicht_aktiv = 00 - Comment = last Function mode nicht eingeschaltet
15min = 0F

What it says is that if you set FesLastFunctionInterval to 15min it will revert to the last setting when restarted within that timeframe.

Furthermore in FesInitMode you should be able to set the value to 255 to always revert to the last setting. However when I edit that value and enter 255 it always changes to 0255 and Unknown as the Word.

The 15min setting doesn't seem to work either.
Will do some further testing after letting the car sit for a while, maybe someone else has had more success?

Werte numbers are in hexadecimal so you must set it to FF, which is 255 in decimal.

Thanks for that, but it would not let me save FF for FesInitMode (see attached error message). I guess the description is not correct for this setting.

I was able to use FF for FesLastFunctionInterval, will test and update here.

FesInitMode has bitmask 00001111, which means that it has only 4 bits reserved for it. This makes 2^4-1 = 15 (dec) = 0F (hex) the maximum value for it.

Would love setting SPORT as the default option. Hopefully the clever guys can figure this out
