If you are in sport and press the traction control button it goes back to comfort and goes into DTC off. Holding the button will put you into DSC off mode which has the sports chassis settings. Pressing the button while in DSC off mode puts you back into comfort. To go straight back to sport from DSC off you have to press sport. To go back to sport + you have to press sport twice.

That is somewhat annoying. It should go back to whatever mode you were in when you turn DSC back on.

I could be wrong, but that sounds like a reasonable behavior. If you are in sport which disables DSC and you then enable DSC, the car has to switch to a mode that has DSC enabled 'comfort'. If you then turn off DSC again, all you've done is told the car you want to be in Comfort but without DSC - it wouldn't expect that turning off DSC manually would mean the same as going into sport - that's why they are separate buttons.

Sport doesn't disable DTC or DSC. DSC off is always in sport.
