Ah thanks guys. Now i wish I had just gotten a 2019 on the floor that had a first edition (or something like that) pack along with the M sport pack. The wheels looked stunning too!

Sport+ aside I honestly think that Comfort+ is the biggest win here. I hate driving on Comfort even with stage 1, I just simply think itís lacking in acceleration.. But Comfort+ is amazing, the moment you accelerate, you get tons of power, but after youíre done accelerating, the RPMs drop to the lowest possible, saving gas mileage. Itís what I think Comfort should be, after all, we didnít buy a BMW for no reason..

Planning on coding comfort plus tomorrow. But Iím busy having fun with sport plus

Any luck with figuring out how to make it show up in the idrive as well? I read about someone coding it using esys and they have it on their idrive too I think.

At this point I have given up, Iím just happy Iím able to drive in Sport+. The reason I wanted it in the control screen was to see whether or not the Sport+ settings can be configured into Sport Individual like how it is on the C300, but I think Sport+ is its own thing and it canít be configured like Sport and Comfort can.

I turned off my control screen popup when switching modes because I donít want passengers to question me when I switch to a different mode..

My Bimmercode ios app (version 3.4) is showing ECU not supported for BDC. I am connecting via OBDLink MX+.

Do I need the beta version to access BDC or a different Adapter?

It's in iDrive settings. Go to Car Settings, and then scroll down to pop-ups in the general settings menu, and then you can turn off pop up for changing driving mode.

Are you on iPhone? Also, you might need the beta version since current public version might not have support to code BDC yet. Additionally, make sure your vehicle is in Diagnostic Mode before you start connecting and coding.

Let me know how it goes!

Damn. I didn’t know you can turn it off. I used to hit the sport button and then the radio button fast so my wife wouldn’t notice me changing modes This was before I coded it to start in sport individual. I should check to see if I can code it to start in sport plus.

If you go through the codes in Expert Mode I'm pretty sure 10-15 minutes and we'll probably be able to find how to start in Sport+, but it's not available in the drop down menu in BDC.

I'd recommend not always being in Sport+ though because it puts all the settings on steroids, starting in Sport or Sport Individual is perfect

Just disable the pop-up so your wife doesn't mention anything bout it again

Yes, iphone. Got the ios beta. Will try it out tonight. Where's the comfort plus setting? Going to add that too.

Lol I cannot make head or tail out of what is written in the expert mode option! Itís all Greek and Latin (German?) to me.
And I agree. Car definitely feels like itís on Ďroids now. Who would have thought that a plus next to sport will make it seem like a whole new car again?!

Yes. The beta app for bimmercode (test flight) is needed. Comfort plus is in a similar option to fessportworldmode (Iím going to assume sport is replaced by comfort). I think g20beam has mentioned it in his opening post.

No idea. I think the android app already has it? Not sure about apple.

Coded Comfort plus today. But did not drive around in it. Again. I can’t seem to get it to show up on the idrive. I tried coding comfort individual but same issue. Nothing on idrive and comfort individual shows up as a blank on the live cockpit. So I uncoded it.

I did some digging in the G01 coding thread where someone had mentioned this months back. They had the same issue though (shows up on the live cockpit but not on the idrive). Someone else mentioned that some changes have to be made in the HU_nbt 3008 FES (change some values to aktiv) for it to show up on the idrive. I haven’t checked our cars for that module but I will see if I can find time to do it tomorrow.

Is there a noticeable difference? Like in our 330is?

I am from the UK, BMW changed the setup of the 320i M Sport. I had a lease car, BMW 320i M Sport (July 19 build). This had Sports+ mode and the exhaust sound was brilliant with lots of pops.

I then purchased a BMW 320i M Sport in January (Dec 19 build) and there was no Sport+ mode and the car makes no exhaust pops at all.

Interested if anyone in the same situation as me as activated Sport+ mode and got any exhaust pops back?

@VipinLJ ,

Though I neither use it or can really tell the difference between it & Comfort mode, I coded it some ago using E-Sys. There were six functions I changed:
BDC_BODY:
• FesComfortWorldMode1 from 00 to 05
• FesPiaDefaultEcoWorldMode from 07 to 09
• FesPiaDefaultComfortWorldMode from 04 to 05

HG_MGU
• FesComfortPlus from 00 to 01
• Eco_Conf_Acceleration_ComfortPlus from 00 to 01
• Eco_Conf_Steering_ComfPlus from 00 to 01

BTW, I discovered with past F30, when I took car in for service sometimes dealer would update software -- which meant my coding was gone, so I keep a list of what specifics I code

Hope that helps

Yes. My exhaust now pops more in sport +, especially on downshifts. I can even hear it inside my car now.

Thank you for the update. That is probably what we need to code as well. I tried coding last night but we can’t access expert mode under the head unit module yet. I could access expert mode in the instrument cluster module but couldn’t make heads or tails of it. I guess we’ll have to wait till Stephan let’s us use expert code on the head unit module
And yes. I have a list of coding changes too for that very same reason.

Coded in Sport+, loved the power pretty high up in the rev range and the lightening fast shifts. It keeps the revs pretty high so I just use it to do fast pulls when merging into the highway.

Wasn't able to find Comfort+ though. I like the idea of doing a pull and then the car settling down to lower revs quickly after that.

Any specific instructions to code Comfort+?

Comfort plus is in the same module. Search for fescomfortworldmode1 instead of fessportworldmode1. You can code comfort plus there.

Also, I had mailed Stephan a few days earlier. He said to code the option I’m the iDrive, the head unit module needs to be coded, which isn’t possible now. He’ll probably add the expert code option in the future. But for now, it isn’t available.

Edit - I did drive around in comfort plus for around two hours yesterday. I didn’t feel much of a difference except for the gearshifts being more noticeable. I prefer sport individual and sport plus over comfort plus any day. Just my opinion though

It’s a huge upgrade over Comfort while running stage 1. In comfort on stage 1, the acceleration pedal is really desensitized, it’s laggy at best. You would have to pull super hard to get any kind of quicker response. In Comfort+, when I accelerate, it’s pretty much instant throttle, but when I let go of throttle, the RPMs drop back to lowest possible very quick. It has great acceleration response but doesn’t hold your gear like Sport+ does. If you’re looking for good performance to fuel economy while still having that buttery smooth suspension setting from Comfort, Comfort+ is a great option to drive in.

Edit: If you’re driving groceries or when you have a full car, and you still want to change lanes or overtake with ease, then it's worth it to have this mode. I'm not sure how it differs in stock since I am on stage 1 but maybe @VipinLJ is right, in stock it probably doesn't make much of a difference, or even paired with JB+.

I also inquired with Stephan about HU_MGU expert mode coding (hadn't seen this prior), and he said this morning that it will be added at some point in the future, but at the moment there is no fixed release date.
