Sport Mode - What all changes?

I know the steering weight goes up and the throttle response quickens as well. What else changes? I'm on day two of ownership and still learning...

I'm no expert on the tech side, but the settings show Drivetrain and/or Chassis can be engaged in Sport Mode.

As I understand it, the Chassis option is only available if you have at least the Dynamic Damper Control option.

Yes there's an exhaust valve too but actually I thinks that's all the ther e is to it unless anyone else knows differently.

Surprisingly delighted to have moved to an f54((with a r59 in the fold for fun!)

Yes. There's supposedly a dedicated speaker on the left rear interior wall.

Not sure I would call it "fake" engine sounds. Synthesized, perhaps, but the sounds are designed to restore sounds from the engine that contribute to driver pleasure but are suppressed by the sound-deadening or otherwise messed up by the dynamics of the structure.

They are just putting back what the structure took away.

The rear speaker for added engine noise is a mith..
Steering feel changes, albeit it's too light for my liking.
Throttle response is better.
ECU tells injectors to add fuel on the overrun, hence the pops
