OnebadM5 - Just a minor correction unless there is a misunderstanding but the SPORT button the E46 M3 does not do anything with the steering like stiffen it up or change ratios. That only happens on the M5. BMW also calls this Servotronic. The M Driving Dynamics Control is also new to me but I'm sure its somewhere in text.

"Sport" mode actually first came out when drive by wire was introduced on the old 750iL. There wasnt a SPORT button but if you put the automatic shift lever into 4th gear, the DME will automatically go into sport mode thus stiffen up the steering feel. This was also give more throttle progression just like what the E46 M3s and E39 M5s are doing today.

Actually the button sharpens the trottle response, it does go the same with the throttle on the flood boards, if you read in the handbook it says it also cuts the power back by around a third when not on full throttle and also dulls the feel of the throttle.
