Sport Plus meh

how much do you all enjoy Sport plus mode?
Apart from the pops, burbles and farts, and throttle response to shoot ur eyeballs out on springs, does anyone find the manufactured noise(s) a little tiresome/whiney/lacking in character after a while ?

The synthetic sound is probably my least favourite part of sports mode. I wish you can turn off the synthetic sound in sport individual.

That said... I'm 90% in comfort or adaptive with my commutes. Rarely do I get the chance to enjoy roads that call for sports mode. 😂

It'd be nice to know what it sounds like "raw" -
As it is, I think someone in this forum described sport plus as sounding like an angry lawnmower!

I believe the synthetic sound can be coded off. Havenít done it myself but there are threads in the forum.

Like tam mentioned, ASD can be coded off.

And when itís off, the car sounds like it does in Comfort mode, even in sport mode.

US spec 330is donít get sport + unfortunately.

Yep most of the time it's boring commutes for me so was wrong environment for sport plus...

taken 8 months (!) to finally get out beyond the dande ranges today and with a bit of camber and gradient challenge the car responds spectacularly - and the "noise" is actually not too bad...maybe 🤔
