Default to sport mode?

Is there a way to set the driving mode so that the default is sport instead of reverting to comfort each time the car is restarted? Also, is the a way to permanently disable start/stop?

Thanks

Nope, not even by coding (that anyone knows of).

You have a 2014, right? It should remember your last setting. Dealer also can set it to be always off, or coding can set it to always off.

From my own research, you cannot set Sport to default.

Also, you can disable Start/Stop but not permanently. This can be done by changing the code --- go to the coding section of this forum. And, if BMW ever refreshes you software, than you would have to make the code adjustment again.

Hmm, would be nice if they gave us the choice. I prefer sport mode 90% of the time and would be ideal to set as default. Oh well.

Start/stop settings is usually persistent but every now and then it seems to have a mind of it's own. I know that when you switch to eco-pro it re-enables start/stop but it also seems to randomly come back on at other times.

On my 2014, I turned it off with the button and it has stayed off......no need to code in my opinion.
