Sport Individual Configuration

Does anyone else have this issue or know what causes this situation

Configuration normally has Steering, Chassis, Engine & Transmission (i think)

You can set each element to Comfort or Sport.

Sometime I have a line against Steering & Chassis and cannot configure them.

Anyone know why?

I would suggest that you don't have either the VDC (variable dampers) or active steering, so you can't change the settings there

Do you mean sometimes you can and sometimes you can't edit them?

This morning the options to change are back again rather than having a line next to them.

Were you moving or something when you last tried to change?

I see the same issue. Sometimes the individual config is available, sometimes it's not. I can't seem to see any pattern.

Ok silly question. I get transmission being sport vs comfort. What does it mean to have engine in sport vs comfort...?

From my understanding "Sport mode" on the engine settings sharpens the throttle response vs the comfort settings

Ok so sport transmission just makes the gear changes quicker and later but the engine sport means the throttle response is sharper.

So in older cars the sport used to do those in one and now we can choose...

Cool. Not sure it's much use separated, but cool...

how do you get to sport individual?
I've only seen eco pro, comfort , sport (and optionally adaptive) on the centre console.
(do you press sport twice perhaps?)

Ajfoggy did you ever get to the bottom of this? Just had the same issue with my steering: showing as - - instead sport or comfort - it worked fine yesterday (the cars only 2 days old!)

Sorry I can't remember. Don't think it's a fault though just some odd software issue or something that can only be changed at a certain point. Sorry I can't be much more help.

Ah ok, it does "seem" like a software niggle - but started making me wonder if the steering changed at all between modes... kind of anti-placebo mode.

Itll probably just sort itself out im sure - and the steering feels excellent in both modes anyway.

Correct - multiple presses of Sport will toggle through Sport, Sport Plus and Sport Individual. Or, once you press sport, you can use the iDrive to select...

I observed the same issue on a 540i loaner car. Sometime it allowed steering effort changes in the individual modes and sometimes that option was grayed out. It was also hard to tell a difference even when it worked, at least not as dramatic as in my F10.

I think the problem is something to do with driver profiles. Mine stopped working when the "only" thing I'd changed was to install my driver profile from my previous car via USB stick.
Issue still existed this morning, then this occurred to me so I locked the car, went and got the spare key (and no associated profile) unlocked it.. et voila the setting was back! (For both keys!)
