Ok slightly ambiguous title but it made you look!!

I've had my MINI Cooper for around 4 weeks now and have been running it predominately in Green mode due to short trips and urban commuting. I was leaving the gym tonight to go home, only a 5 minute drive and thought I'd try it in Sport mode for the first time.

OMG the difference is incredible! The power is amazing and the gear changes - unless I'm imagining - are so much smoother.

Think I'll have to use sport mode a lot more!!! :)

Colourful Language!

Donna, as a spokesman for the United Deep Blue Fraternity, I'd like to advise you & your Violent Orange supporters that Green mode is fine for long motorway trips with the cruise-control on... otherwise, it's best avoided!!

So, what does sport mode actually do?

Something with the acceleration and the steering it feels like... but what is it adjusting underneath?

Now I'm very envious... I didn't think anywhere in the UK was 100 miles away from a motorway. Really 100 miles? Hills, glens & the twisties - now you're talking MINI country!!

Now in my current 1 series the Sport, Comfort (=Mid) and Eco Pro (=Green) settings make hardly any difference

I'm intrigued to know what the mini will be like when I pick it up on the 1st!

Seriously it's like driving 3 different cars!! Did some more sport driving today and the difference is huge!

Green Mode has the fish, does sport have anything fun?
