Dynamic Driving Control starting in Sport Mode?

I have a question about he Dynamic Driving Control. I like the ride of my new GT better when it is in Sport mode. When I turn the car on, the default is normal mode and I need to change it to sport mode. Is there way that I can set the car so when I start it up it defaults to sport mode and not normal mode?

This MIGHT be possible if you want to hack the defaults, but they are not available from the user menu. Check out the programming forum. There are all sorts of things that can be controlled if you're willing to mess around. To do this requires purchase of a cable and the downloading of some HUGE data files, and the willingness to learn how to do it. Basically, with the software running, you download the appropriate data from the car, edit it, then send it back. There are literally thousands of little things that can be changed. In some markets, when you lock the car, the mirrors fold in. You can get rid of the warning messages, add info to the HUD, and all sorts of things.
