    If I remember right all it does is change the throttle pedal travel

    Throttle response, steering response and if the car has IDS, it stiffens the suspension slightly.

    Yeh makes the throttle move responsive (i.e. less pressure required for accleration) and think also adjusts the suspension harder, sportier ride?!?!

    There will be no increase in power, or bhp with sport button.

    well it does nothing of the above. would re-setting the throttle body help - even though I'm not sure how to do that?

    You'll only have harder suspension if you have IDS+ as domino says. So I'm guessing all you'll get is the steering response and the throttle response.

    TBH - I've never noticed a difference with the steering response. With the throttle, if you drive like you stole it, with your foot down all the time, you'll not notice a difference either as it just means that you dont have to put your foot down as far, to get the same power. You wont get any more power than foot to the floor!!

    i'd get it checked as like i said at 3k revs and then pressing the sport button u should feel it pull more, even my girlfriend can feel the pull when its pressed and she knows nothing about cars at all (she's even started pressing it when i come up behind some1 so that its easier 2 take over - dont know if thats a good thing lol)
