A very, very stupid question.

I am getting my car tomorrow. My ex has her's already but I have not seen it as yet! I tried to ask her about adjustment to the M-Sport Adaptive Suspension and she did not have a clue what I was talking about. She has not got to that part in the manual as yet! I asked her if she had Sport+, Sport, Comfort, Eco Pro. Again not a clue.!!

Is the Adaptive Suspension part of the Drive Performance Control? Or, is there a special button for the suspension?

Please do enlighten me before I make a fool of myself tomorrow.

Does it not show on a screen between the speedo and rev counters?
In Sport+ mode is the traction control is disabled?

Yes it also shows on the speedo/rev counter screen that in Sport+ mode traction is disabled and you are taking your life in your hands...

Ha, Ha!
I hope my ex is not in that mode. She keeps telling me the car behaves like a race horse! I'll go and check that she's in the right mode on Christmas Day!

You too!
Thanks for your help.

It's going to piss down buckets tomorrow in London town. At least I'll know if the car leaks or not. Just my flipping luck.

If she is not aware of how to change the modes, she will most likely be in comfort ( the default setting) all the time. Sport mode will scare the living day lights out of her, lol

That would be a first! She drives like a rally driver and tears around roundabouts as if they were straight roads! Even managed a speeding ticket recently. 50mph over the speed limit on that narrow road!!!

I drive like a granny in comparison.

The dealer is going to bring the car to me tomorrow as I cannot leave the house for a variety of reasons. When I rang them today, they did not have a clue when this would be. Charming.

Don't you just love BMW service? I might as well be waiting for the man from Comet for a Fridge delivery!
