With my 550, I pull out of my car port in M1/Sport+ every time, there's something about being in control. It makes the driving experience better.

When I first got into mine, it was Sport or Sport+ 100% of the time, but I think it was because I was coming from an E90 M3 and felt the F10 was just too soft (too drastic of a change). The more I've driven it though, the more I've begun leaving it in Comfort Mode. Only rarely do I switch to Sport, usually when I need to exploit gaps in traffic. The auto transmission is too dim-witted to use the paddles with any frequency - it's certainly no DCT.
