Hi all

I'm currently stationed in Germany, driving a 2000 320CI.

I was wondering about how the steptronic works, specifically this : Is the car only in sports mode if I flip over into M/S and not shift up or down? Or does it disable sport mode if I do use the steptronic to shift?

I've noticed that when I first flip it over an S D comes up on the dash, but when I shift it shows an M and the current gear I'm in.

Sorry if this is confusing to anyone, thanks!

Makes sense to me.

One more question related to this : a few months ago I plugged the car's vin into a database online and it told me everything the car came with. One of the things was sport suspension setting. When I flip it over into m/s, does it stiffen the suspension, or is it just saying I have sport suspension overall?

Also, if it does stiffen the suspension, does shifting manually take it out of sport mode (considering the s turns into an m on the dash)

Thanks again!
