How is throttle response adjusted in sport?

As I understand it the sport or sport plus options only affect the way the engine responds to the corresponding position of the throttle pedal. In my E46 when I switch back and forth I get an obvious difference based on the position of the pedal. If at a constant speed I press the sport button the car will surge and when I de-select the car slows. Again a direct function of the pedals position.

On the E92 it almost seems as if the engine is behaving differently depending on which setting I choose. At a set speed when toggling between the sport settings the car does not surge but if accelerating it does. It almost feels like the car is faster or more responsive but I know this is not what is advertised.

Anyone know what the difference is?

That's exactly the way it is in mine. Throttle pedal is more sensitive with sport, and even more with sport plus. I always have it in 'sport', since that's pretty much the way all my other cars are. Good day.

In the E46 I believe selecting sport causes the throttle to reach 100% with a smaller amount of pedal movement while in normal mode the throttle throw is linear reaching full throttle oncee the pedal is on the floor.

E92 feels different.
