    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    hi! First post here :) picked up a new 530d m sport this week, one thing I noticed today is that it doesn't have a sport+ setting, just Eco, comfort and sport. We have a 120d and that has the sport+ setting. Does the 530d just not have the sport+ setting or am I missing something? Thanks :)
