Dynamic Damping Control

I do not yet own a BMW, but I am seriously considering a purchase of a 2013 750i all wheel drive. Does anyone know if the car keeps the setting on the last-used setting on the dynamic damping control (comfort, normal, sport or sport+) so that when the car is turned off and then back on again, that same setting is still in place, or does the driver have to re-manually set that setting again after the car ignition is turned back on? Thank you.

As of now it defaults every time you turn off the car, so you'll have to select your desired setting (eg: Sport) every time you start the car. A lot of people are working on custom coding to change that - but no luck so far.

The exception is Comfort+, it will stay after you turn your car back on.

I tried to see if Alex could code it while he was coding other things but he hasn't found/figured that one out yet. We're not the only people that want that coded.

Well after a while it gets into your ritual. Touch door(comfort access), get in, nearly close door(soft close automatic), put on seat belt, start engine, put in sport, press auto hold(no need to release parking brake), put in reverse.
