Is there any difference between moving the gear lever to the left and changing my car to sport mode using the button as far as the transmission is concerned?

When I put the car into sport mode from comfort mode, do I need to move the gear lever as well or is that redundant?

Two different things. Moving the gear selector to the left puts the transmission in sport mode. The shifts will be quicker only.

Putting the car into sport mode with the button only increases throttle response and tightens steering.

That is to say if you have the sport transmission or code 2TB

I have a 2014 435i x-drive. I currently do not have this option. Can anyone confirm that with this option coded, the steering wheel feel changes between sport and comfort? As of now, I have no change in the feel between the modes.

**It may be important to note that I do not have Adaptive suspension or Variable sport steering.

The one thing that isn't achievable is to have sport throttle only since they bundle throttle and transmission settings together under drivetrain. Personally i'm ok with that since i can't stand the sport throttle setting.
But you should be able to achieve:
-steering only (by sleecting chassis only)
-tranmssion only (using gear lever)
-Steering, trans and throttle (all)
-Steering and trans (chassis only + gear lever to left)
-trans and throttle only (drivetrain)
I have an M Performance package (DHP) F31d. It is possible to get sport throttle response but comfort auto shifting in comfort mode by coding?

Obviously if you have EDC then you will have sport suspension in comfort mode, but if you don't then its perfect, sport steering with everything else comfort.
I have a '17 F31 with adaptive suspension and there are no configurable settings for comfort mode. In drive mode settings, I only see sport and ecopro. It would be great to be in comfort mode but get sport throttle response, sport steering and comfort suspension.
