Sport + all the time.
If I am running low on gas, I find a station.

Sport+ is a very specific thing for me. Standard Sport usually does the trick without having to worry that the car sounds like an angry lawn mower.

For Dallas metro driving, Sport-Individual suits me best, where I can soften the engine, firm up the suspension and bump up the tranny.

After having my G20 for a few months, I find I drive in sport individual for anything not on the highway. Iím not a fan of comfort mode in traffic or low speeds due to the transmission shifting to higher gear WAY too early. Itís annoying. The transmission settings on sport individual is perfect.

Not sure if I am making a mistake and should be driving in sport mode all the time to truly enjoy the car. If that's what everyone here does it would sway me to do the same lol.
Nope.

Will only stick it in Sport if I have an overtake coming up

When I first got my 330i I was putting it in 'adaptive' and never noticed any change. Either I a man missing something or I am a sedate driver. The latter, I think....

I always drive in Comfort mode. Feels great nice and relaxing.. if I'm in the mood for some spirited driving I'll wait until the cars at operating temperature and than place it in sport.. I like to keep my RPM's low for the first 10 mins of my drive until the oil warms up...

Almost always in Sport Individual (steering and suspension set to comfort and engine and transmission set to Sport).

I do in my F30 340i... in comfort the throttle response simply isn't sharp enough and the steering is too light!

IMO cars shouldn't have these drive modes I just see them as a gimmick! You should control the throttle with your right foot not a button on the dash!! If you want gentle acceleration just press more gently with your right foot

I don't want to have to get in my car and push a button every time just to get 'proper' throttle response! This is a sports sedan after all.

I typically toggle between Eco, Comfort and Sport Individual; it really depends on traffic conditions.

Driving in Eco Pro or Comfort in bumper-to-bumper LA traffic with start/stop active is more or less an exercise of being less wasteful.
