It's also different if you have adaptive suspension, you can configure SPORT to be chassis only, drivetrain only, or both. SPORT+ is always both.

It seems to me that Sport+ on my 435 (with PPK) has a more linear response on the throttle map.. not sure about the rest of the handling, but I can tell which mode it is in - they are a bit different.

On my '14 328i the steering gets tighter again as compared to sport. The throttle mapping seems different, gear shifts hold longer and traction is off as well...

And funnily enough, the car seems more predictable overall in Sport+, even with the DSC off.

Some say this is true (the steering). I disagree and BMW only claims that Sport + defeats traction control. I cannot tell a difference in the steering.

I could be wrong but I was under the impression that Sport+ decreases the the traction nanny a bit and returns the throttle mapping to comfort mode.

Not sure, but I do drive mine in Sport + verses Sport for whatever virtual reality it sets up in my feeble head, it feels different .. placebo or not..
