Changing Driving Mode

With my 2012 135 M Sport... Are there any issues with changing from drive to sport (and back again) and/or pressing the sport button when you are moving? Will this cause increased wear and tear on the DCT?

Thanks.

Nope. Sport button is throttle response only, doesn't effect the transmission at all. Going from Drive to Sport on the stick effects shift points, ie: when it changes gears, and how long it holds them.

No ware on the DCT either way I'd say.

The sport button definitely affects the transmission. It will hold gears longer, as well as shift faster. There's more info in the owner's manual.
