Isn't your M2 setting the default start up setting? Seems like a waste no?

New owner here. Is there any appreciable difference between comfort and sport steering? I've heard Sport+ is way too heavy but I'd like to just have one steering setting all the time for consistency.

Yes. Big difference. FWIW, I have my comp pack M3 set to sport plus steering and my non-comp M4 set to sport steering.

Yes there is a difference in all 3 modes. Try them all out for a little bit and find which one you like the most.

Why do you have them set up that way?

BMW made huge changes to the software and programming when the comp pack was released. Sport plus steering in the M3 is as close to sport in the M4 as I can get. After 2.5 years of the M4, I have come to love the heavy steering feel. Most will probably prefer sport steering as opposed to sport plus....

M1:
- Throttle: Sport Plus
- Suspension: Sport Plus
- Steering: Sport Plus
- Transmission: S3
- DSC: On

M2:
- Throttle: Sport Plus
- Suspension: Sport Plus
- Steering: Sport Plus
- Transmission: S3
- DSC: Off

M1 is when I'm attacking corners, as I'm a little too risk averse to throttle down without driver assistance saving me

M2 is when I'm just cruising around town. It's fun to light the tires up a little every once in awhile

In the M Driving school, they advice to keep the steering in comfort for the most natural feel which is what I actually prefer. I feel more in control vs the artificially heavy sports and sports+ is a big no no for me unless I was going to the Autobahn and planning to drive at 200+ KM/H

Agreed. I normally prefer heavy steering, but it just feels so artificially boosted to me in the other modes.

Yeah, it's were I have settled as well, comfort. Took some time to get there but sport and sport+ have even less steering feel, if that's possible?
