Mein Auto: 2008 535i
DS vs D mode

Hi all

I have a 2006 525i and have done 1200 miles on it but I still have not noticed any difference in the drive when the car is in the "DS" or "D" mode. ( I presume DS means sports mode- please ignore my ignorance).

Does slamming the accelerator harm the engine?

Love every second of my Bimmer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mein Auto: 2010 M3 and 2011 135i
In DS it should hold the gear longer and not, or significantly delay, shifting into overdrive (6).
