    OK, I read the manual, seen a bunch of YouTube reviews, heard about Adaptive Mode, but I don't get it. What does the computer do to "change parameters based on my driving style?" I almost always just go to Sport Plus, and "manual" shifting, immediately upon firing my M40i up. Changing shift points in D is of no interest to me. Did I mention how much I want a real manual transmission? I may need to just try Adaptive Mode for a while, to see if I can tell if it's doing something. What can you tell me about it? Thanks!
