Driving Profiles

With the F20 you get the choice of 4 driving profiles, Eco Pro ,Comfort etc. Now I've had my 116i for nearly 2 months now and I've developed a habit of driving in the Eco Pro mode but every so often I feel the need for speed and hit the Sport mode,does anyone else get this feeling

I did exactly the same. Also letargic response of throttle in eco pro and comfort mode is really annoing.

I spend most of the time in Eco Pro mode also mainly because im on motorways 90% of the time, but when im off the motorways its always tempting to have a quick blast in sport mode!!

I struggle to drive in Eco Pro the lack of throttle response is hard to take... For everyday and work I use comfort and then Sport + for my fun !!!

I do exactly the same and occasionally let it loose in sport + as i am conscious about fuel consumption. Haha

Its well good to have the options though in comparison to other vehicles!!

Garage List
I do the same. Eco Pro when I drive in the city (daily commute) and Sport in the rest of the time. There is a big difference...Eco Pro kills the response!!
