If enough owners complain to BMW maybe they'll fix it on a future software update.

Yes, but that gets annoying. If a Hyundai Equus can remember the setting why can't a BMW?

I already told you why:

Edmunds Inside Line said:
I'm pretty sure most cars default to, for lack of a better term, "limp noodle mode" because it's part of the EPA certification process. Whatever engine setting the car starts in is what the EPA uses when determining fuel mileage ratings. Because the Sport mode on the Equus doesn't change throttle response (or fuel mileage) Hyundai can let the car stay in Sport mode at start up.
