BMW 5-se­ries

MONTH 2 By Ben Miller

CAR (UK) - - Our Cars -

UN­LESS WA­TERS ARE break­ing in the back and you’re 25 miles from hospi­tal, Sport is a com­mit­ted set­ting in the 5-se­ries. The throt­tle re­sponse is crisp but the dampers set semi-solid and the shift map treats the tur­bod­iesel like a 50cc two-stroke. So now the cus­tomis­able Sport In­di­vid­ual set­ting is my Comfort: Sport throt­tle, Comfort ev­ery­thing else. And be­cause it’s a Sport set­ting, en­gine stop/start is dis­armed. I’m also left with full-blooded Sport up my sleeve should we re­ally need to haul.
