So. Take the car out in the rain and risk getting it dirty or keep it parked till Thursday when the snow hopefully clears up? I can always clean the car and the call of the sport plus mode was inescapable.

TL;DR - Sport plus is not a placebo effect. It definitely works.

I've coded my car to start in sport individual mode. I drove around for a little while in it and remembered how the car shifted and throttle reacted. Went to sport plus and car definitely shifts faster/aggressively. Downshifts are the most noticeable. It shifts slightly harsh, which I like. Throttle felt slightly more responsive. Placebo effect? I don't think so. I did test by keeping my eyes on the road and pressing the sport button a few times till I forgot which mode (sport/sport plus/sport individual) it was on. And then I paid attention to the gearshifts and throttle. I could tell when I was in sport plus vs when I was in the other modes. And the exhaust does seem to pop and crackle more in sport plus.
So grateful to g20beam for posting this on here.

To anyone with bimmercode. If you haven't coded sport plus, absolutely do.
When you are in sport plus (as seen on live cockpit) what does your iDrive show?

It shows sport setting with the sport option highlighted at the bottom (which is before Individual and configure individual). Thereís no sport plus option there.

So I realised that the official iDrive 7.0 with Sport+ actually shows it as a setting in the Control Screen, so Iím going to try and look through the codes in another module through expert mode and try to code this feature as well.

If Sport+ sneaked itís way into bimmercode.. Then the menu too must surely be there too..

Can this be done via the iPhone app available in the Apple App Store? Never used BimmerCode but if I can enable sport plus I'll give it a shot.

Yup. My thoughts exactly. Though I donít know what to look for since nothing in there makes sense to me

We have the beta software. If youíre on an android phone, you can buy it and then click the join beta tester option at the bottom of the play page. I donít know if BDC is available in the regular app. If it is, then it should work.

Glad this worked for you, I hope that paired with the JB+ will be enough to satisfy your needs, hopefully you can hop on the BM3 route in the future when itís definitely cracked.

Yes! I didnít actually think sport plus would make a noticeable difference but it does. I like how the shifts are a bit more aggressive now. Itís like the car suddenly gained a couple of extra butthorsepower to me. Totally love it! And yes. Iíll check with BM3 again in a few months. Hopefully others also come out with tunes for the 330i.

Yes sir. European 330is have it from factory but NA cars donít. g20beam found out how to code it in but we canít see it in the iDrive like you do. Hopefully heíll figure it out and post about it on here

Stupid question. What does it mean if the body domain controller is grayed out and says "Ecu not supported"?

Thanks! 😅

Same issue as lance666. If you have updated it and it still isnít working, you should mail Stephan. Heíll sort it out for you.

Also, are both of you beta testers? In the update notes in google play, does it say g20 BDC supported?

Also, if I code this into my car and Bimmercode later releases an in app sport+ code, do you think it'll be able to override this code we're doing and there won't be any issues?

Under BDC, thereís an option called Default driving mode. That is set to comfort by default. I changed that to Sport individual. So now my car starts in sport individual.
