Force servotronic to sport

Any way to do this with coding, rather than via the M button? I'd like to reserve the M button for MDM, and always have the servotronic on sport mode. IMO the E92 M3 steering is too loose, but better in sport.

Has anyone done this yet? Searching proved difficult.

You can do what I'm doing
For wider tires
So that makes the steering heavier
I got 265/35 front and 285/35 rear
Same size difference as OEM
But wider

Lower tire pressure?
Only problem is most of the coding to our cars is done over on e90post
So they don't have m-drive
Not sure how we can figure it out
We need an M3 tweaker that knows coding
I'd love to have the sport setting as standard
And being able to have power steering turned off at speed with m-drive
