DTC/DSC off and driving mode

I just noticed that if i turn DSC/DTC fully off, even if you put the car in sport+ first, then fully disable DSC, it feels like the suspension/steering/throttle was set to comfort mode.
Can someone comfirm this?
Is there any setting you can change or code into the car so when DSC/DTC is fully off, the car stays in Sport+?

I'm interested in it too... There's no way to leave sport+ and dsc fully off. When you disable the controls the car switch automatically to comfort mode... Any chance to solve it?

This is what I noticed... in order to keep the chassis in sport mode (DHP - active shocks and steering) and turn off DSC, you have to hold down the DSC button for several seconds (about 5-10 or so).

It then does not switch back to Comfort mode. It reverts to Sport (not Sport+) but retains all the benefits of the active suspension and steering. The drivetrain seems to go back to comfort mode, which basically means no twitchy throttle. I actually prefer it that way; with DSC off you really want to be able to feather the throttle easily and not have it be so twitchy, especially at speed.

When I put the car into sport+ the DSC yellow light on the dash turns on. Doesn't that mean DSC is automatically off in Sport+?

I believe that means its not off, but in a 'lower' mode. To turn it off you have to hold it as SergioK demonstrates with pics.
