Curious as to which mode most of you drive in

For daily driving, I am mostly in Comfort and DS. I use Sport mode for bursts of fun, but its too edgy for daily driving.

1. Sport+ almost all the time
2. Traction Control completely off for some real fun.
3. Sport if it is raining out for the traction control.
4. Comfort if my Parents, Wife or baby is in the car.

Never Comfort+, it makes the car float and bounce like a Cadillac.

I drive in comfort mostly because that is what the car defaults to. But lately I have been setting it to sport a little more often to get rid of the floaty suspension feel. I think I am going to configure sport to not modify drivetrain settings because as BigKutta mentioned the drive feel is way too twitchy.

As living in a location where high speed road (ie > 70km/h) are scarce, I am staying in Eco Pro.
But in indoor carparks or sloppy road, Comfort (not even sport )

Sport+ or Sport (minus drivetrain setting) about 80% of the time. Comfort for those rare occasions or if I don't want to bother switching from default. The steering response is too sloppy in modes other than sport IMHO, but I am coming from an M3 that had KW Clubsports too.....

Comfort 90%
Sport 10% (only when I'm in the car and feel like charging of from the lights!)

I find Sport tends to make you feel bullet proof... but too many cops and cameras around so I avoid he temptation...

Normal (default mode) when stuck in traffic or on speed restricted motorways (using standard cruise control whenever possible)
Sport with DS/Manual when there's no blocking traffic on country roads

I drive Sportmode (chassis only) 90% of time...and normal transmission on highway and city...when I need the extra power I'll shift over to the left.
I just got the car so I'm just getting used to all the different settings...

I assume in Sportsplus, the DTC is off, ...i assume cornering would be the main concern?
