OK, so after having lived with the car a little longer, here are my new settings:

I now have MDM activated in the "Comfy DD" M1 setting; I find the regular DSC way too castrating. Since I only use DCT "D" mode on the daily drive and since it already defaults to D1, I prefer to have M1 set with DCT in S1. If I want "D" mode, I simply flick the shift lever to the right and get D1.

I also toned down the DCT to S2 for the "spirited street" M2 setting. I find that the aggresive shifts in S3 caused too much MDM intervention; I find S3 perfect for the track with DSC off though.

M1 (Comfy DD):
- Throttle: Efficient
- Suspension: Comfort
- Steering: Comfort
- Transmission: S1
- DSC: MDM
- HUD: None

M2 (Spirited street / Wet track):
- Throttle: Sport
- Suspension: Sport
- Steering: Sport Plus
- Transmission: S2
- DSC: MDM
- HUD: None

M2 (Dry track):
- Throttle: Sport Plus
- Suspension: Sport Plus
- Steering: Sport Plus
- Transmission: S3
- DSC: Off
- HUD: None

I am still pissed about the default start-up settings . BMW, are you listening

My current WINTER settings are as follows:

M1 - Winter:
- Throttle: Sport
- Suspension: Sport
- Steering: Sport
- Transmission: S2
- DSC: On
- HUD: M View

M2 - Winter:
- Throttle: Efficient
- Suspension: Sport
- Steering: Sport
- Transmission: D1
- DSC: On
- HUD: M View

Once I get the PSS back on and temps go back up in spring, I'll change these as follows:

M1:
- Throttle: Sport
- Suspension: Sport
- Steering: Sport
- Transmission: S3
- DSC: MDM/Off
- HUD: M View

M2:
- Throttle: Efficient
- Suspension: Sport
- Steering: Sport
- Transmission: D1
- DSC: MDM
- HUD: M View

Basically M1 is my "default" setting, while M2 is for rush hour or heavy stop and go traffic, on the phone, or eating a cheeseburger...

I haven't seen anyone post this combo yet. IMHO, steering is best in comfort mode in any combination, and closest to the feel of my old E93. Transmission 3 is the closest simulation to the DCT I'm used to from my E93 as well, the other two settings just feel normal to me. Sport + throttle is cool, but challenging for driving around the city. Sport + suspension makes up a little for the lack of stiffness of the convertible, less noise from the roof panels. MDM mode is as daring as I get, no desire to do donuts through intersections. Only complaint about the M mode HUD is when I need to use GPS, instructions relocate to the console and they are hard to follow. Subtle difference between the two modes but just right for 90% of my normal usage. If I have someone new in the car, I usually start off with everything in comfort mode, transmission on 1, then step it up to show the difference. It is a perplexing oversight to not let us set the preferences for startup though, but I just hit M1 as soon as I turn on the car and get on with it. It's hard not to enjoy this car no matter what you do!

M1 is my daily mode, M2 is my daily "fun" mode. I set both modes with DSC on because I rarely drive the car at the most extreme mode. If I do, I set it manually.

Anybody know if you can code yet for standard settings yet as opposed to hitting the M1/M2 button?

My m1&2 buttons aren't really that much different from each other. I can't seem to find one setting that I really want to stay in all the time. I'm constantly changing the settings manually and almost always use comfort and efficient modes unless I'm doing spirited driving.

I saw the top gear episode with the m4 and clarkson noted that the car is easiest to get sideways and keep sideways with steering in comfort. Since I just got mine and haven't had time (north east weather sucks) to track it, I can't comment on the validity of his statement. I have a track day coming up next month and will know soon.

I programmed one of the radio buttons for HUD on and HUD off so you can still use the M buttons and then simply push, in my case number seven... Toggles the HUD off and on with one button.

So it activates only in D?interesting... But you drive in S1 so I guess it doesn't activate for you.

Why not Sports+, do you see some shortcoming here?

I have been alway curious about S+ steering, I must be very weak, but I find it very heavy. Can you elaborate on its application or intended usage in this situation?

I guess you don't have adaptive suspension, so is what is the equivalent mode of a car without it to car with it? Sports mode? Thanks you!
