Being I'm sitting in my car as we speak, I can read it off:

EDC - Sport
DSC - M Dynamic Mode
Power - Sport Plus
Servotronic - Sport

Keep in mind that after the 1200 mile break-in, I've never once driven my car without the M button engaged.

Power - Sport

Everything else I leave unless I know I'm somewhere where I might not want DSC doing its thing so all my M button does is turn on MDM.

I didn't know you could set Servotronic when not in M mode. All i have under "Key Dependent Settings" is Power and EDC.

Normal:
EDC - Normal (not comfort)
Power - Sport


M Mode:
EDC- Sport
DSC - M Dynamic Mode
Power - Sport Plus
Servotronic - Sport

I have a VERY hard time going back and forth from Power Normal to Power Sport plus, so I just stopped using Power Normal. Impossible to heel toe and the throttle response on a normal start is just unpredictable.

I just double checked and couldn't find where to set normal (non M drive) Servotronic. Someone help me out?
