I got the MPPSK installed yesterday and really like the sound but I have a hard time noticing the difference between the Comfort/Eco Pro and Sport/Sport+ sound profile despite being sure there is a difference. My dealer told me that the exhaust will get louder after around 1500 miles so maybe the difference will increase over time also.

NO way...

Its a massive difference between Comfort and Sport/Sport+

If your not hearing a difference its broken, no programmed properly, etc.

Its like Normal BMW vs Ferrari --- literally that much of a difference

And yes it does get louder as you break it in...

You should have a drone between 2 - 4k on the high way in Sport/Sport+

If you dont then for sure something is wrong.

I heard the difference the moment the flap opened up... it takes about 3 minutes after setting it in sport and sport + for the valve to open..

Was immedient for me but my car engine already had 30k when i installed it so that may have played a factor.

Go back to dealer and have them verify that MPPSK software was installed successfully. They should be able to provide a printout of the install report. Also, ask them to check that the flaps are opening when you switch to Sport. The difference in sound is very noticeable.

Does the flap open also in P and or N with the car running when you switch the modes with an immediate noise difference? Or only when driving. And is it opening immediately after entering Sport mode?

Start the car and immediately put it in Sport mode, the car is already loud because the waste gate is open on cold start and putting it in Sport will have no noticeable immediate effect. After thirty seconds or so the waste gate will close and quiet things down a bit, after about another minute the valves should open and you will definitely hear it. About once in every twenty cold starts the Valves won't open unless I give a little throttle input, again the difference is very noticeable. If this is not what you are experiencing take it back to the dealer as somethings not quite right. Good luck!

Ok I feel relatively stupid :-D When I got the car I configured Sport mode to only stiften steering but not adjust the drivetrain to test it but never switched the setting back. Apparently this caused the flaps not to open in Sport mode as the drivetrain is basically not adjusting.

I configured Sport mode now to adjust both the steering and engine. Now the flaps do open and my god it is amazing :-D And they stay open but after switching from Comfort to Sport I do have to step on the gas just mildly.

Good catch, didn't think of that one. Now that you have drivetrain configured you will also notice a significant difference between Sport and Sport+. Have fun!
