BMW 330i Sport

Asked by Dec 19, 2008 at 05:03 PM about the 2002 BMW 3 Series 330i Sedan RWD

Question type: General

What actually is the sport mode on the BMW 330i Auto Sport?  I have just recently bought one and it has the 'sport' mode which is activated with a shift to the left on the gear lever and it absolutely flies in that mode.  But what actually is it doing? It is amazing!

lee, Good choice mate i have one too and yes flies is one way of putting it! ok the sport mode will pick pick up the rev's and drive in one gear down so as you'll have more power right away where as if your in drive you see it takes a second to kick down one or two gears befor you nail it. hope that explains for you, happy driving ;)

Its Semi.... you just SHIFTED it into semi. like Manual gear. if you have the Automatic version of it. Its not a rocket loucher buttom...... agent lee 007 Push on the traction control bottom and push the shift to the left again. And then KICK IT!!!! Then you go in agant 007 mode!!! hehe

Just to add to what Matthew said , the Sport mode holds the gears for longer which keeps up the rpm. I know people find it particularly useful for overtaking as when you engage it it shifts down.
