Normal, Sport, Sport +

ok newb question whats the difference?

Normal = Daily plodding
Sport = more engine power & chassis option if you have

now Sport + is this just sport without traction control or is there any more power given?

sport changes the throttle response, so if you press the pedal say 3 inches in comfort mode for a given level of performance, you'd only press it say 1 inch in sport mode.
the gearbox will straight away change up to give more revs and it hangs on to the gears longer for maximum performance.
it weights up the steering as well.

Sport + is the same but changes DSC to be in DTC mode instead.

All above is not assuming you have any dynamic suspension fitted.

The difference between comfort and sport is very obvious

that's the basics essentially.

The Driving Dynamics Control rocker switch next to the shifter lets you cycle easily through Comfort, Normal, Sport and Sport+ modes to vary multiple settings.

The above chart is a bit confusing and not correct.

BMW use the terms Drivetrain and Chassis, when we have the ability to split the two in the Sport menu, configured on screen via iDrive.

Drivetrain = gearbox and throttle.
Chassis = suspension and steering.

I run with just the Chassis checked. When toggling from Sport to Sport+, besides activating DTC, it also adjusts the drivetrain (although not configured) to a sport setting.

I assume the OP listing Normal, Sport, Sport+, doesn't have the Comfort option. Comfort (in the list with Normal) indicates an active suspension option. (VDC or AD).

Early models with active suspension list Comfort, Normal, Sport, Sport+.
Later models with active suspension list Comfort+ Comfort, Sport, Sport+.

Thank you for attention to the details and your comment. It helps to improve things.
The above chart is taken directly from the official training "BMW Driving Experience" of the 2013. This way is how BMW explains these settings, so we can like it or not. I admit you are right: the word drivetrain should be replaced with chassis, sorry for screwing that up in fast translation. I did my best, and the rest seems to be fine. I also wish someone attends BMW training perfectly introduced in the proper language and than shares.
