M Drive allows for the individual configuration of personal driver profiles from comfortable gliding all the way up to a sporty-direct set-up for use on the racetrack. Activating either of the two saved profiles (and all of the settings saved with them) is as simple as touching one of the two M Drive buttons integrated into the M leather steering wheel.
The M driving dynamics buttons, for adjusting all of the individually configurable drive train and suspension functions, are arranged on the centre console around the gear selector. Independently of each other, the driver can select the DSC mode, the engine's performance characteristics, the adaptive suspension parameters, the M Servotronic steering characteristics, the shift options for the 8-speed M Steptronic transmission and the appearance of the Head-Up Display. An individualised detailed vehicle set-up can be created via the iDrive menu, and it can be saved by holding down one of the two M Drive buttons on the M leather steering wheel.
