This is the best Code
Throttle: Sport+
Steering: Sport
Suspension: Comfort
DSC: MDM
and then modulate the throttle and not floor it

I believe
Sport for throttle and Suspension
Comfort or whatever for steering
Drive logic set at III (If automatic)
Certainly modulate or you'll hug the next tree - LOL

Funny enough last time I was at the dealer my SA drive my car, and we are buddies been with him for years and first thing he said to me when he saw me after he drove it was
"How the hell do you drive this car man? I didn't like it, and he meant it and was so serious , he said I just treated ot like my 3 series gas pedal and he'll broke loose, I really didn't like" but the beast take a long time to tame and like a wild ferocious lion that nobody even can come near unless it's owner or trainer -

If people used a heavy foot all the time they would have a problem. But people get the wrong opinion about this car. We all can drive fast and smooth without pounding the throttle. Smooth response is actually faster.

MDM can still be dangerous if the tires aren't warmed up. Even when I had my 13 M5 the car would slide to the left or right from a stop in MDM just because of how much power the thing puts down. With the comp package it sits lower and even leaving it in comfort will give you some crazy slip. I only open it up on the highway where it truly shines. It's really not a drag racer and you'll get smoked by lesser cars with AWD. The super sport tires are fantastic but if they have lost half of their usable tread life they show a significant difference in traction from a standstill. Best bet is to keep the traction control on and drive it hard on open highway roads where you can calculate the risk and have the appropriate reaction time to deal with any unforeseen issues. Everything in moderation I say. If you're taking it to the drag strip that's a different story, but safety and personal responsibility will keep you from involuntary manslaughter charges where you'll spend what may seem like an eternity in a box. I know I've gone off topic but the car is batshit crazy without the traction control on and accidents do happen. With great torque and limited traction comes great responsibility!

For the best modulation you should use comfort on the throttle setting. Sport/Sport+ only shorten the point to full throttle and do not increase speed and therefore modulation has to be much more precise. I also remember reading somewhere that comfort on the suspension will allow more squat/grip.
