When you go from comfort to sport while you are doing 80km/h makes the car come "alive" you actually feel the whole car stiffen and level up while steering goes to firm and your engine has more power (kinda like a transformer) - very impressed with it and goes well with VSS also.

Yeah I get this part. Drk's post was referring more to the benefits of adaptive m gear and how it affects the handling, not what you're writing about in regard to the steering input, shift behaviour or throttle map all of our cars have.
