Garage List
2015 BMW M4  [4.75]
2006 Audi S4  [0.00]
My settings:

Default (Daily Drive)
DSC: On
DCT: S2 (or D2 when in heavy trafic)
Power: Normal
EDC: Comfort
Servotronic: Normal
Shift Lights: Off

M-mode (Spirited Street)
DSC: MDM
DCT: S5
Power: Sport
EDC: Normal
Servotronic: Sport
Shift Lights: On

M-mode (Track)
DSC: Off
DCT: S6
Power: Sport
EDC: Sport (or Normal on bumpy tracks)
Servotronic: Sport
Shift Lights: On

MDM is perfectly safe for the street. It allows slight wheel spin for efficient brisk launches and allows only very slight lateral slip before it intervenes. I actually use it in heavy snow, as it provided better traction compared to full DSC.

As for Sport+ for the Power setting, I find it much too sensitive, almost like an on-off switch.
