Calling coders. Is this possible?

I drive my M-Sport on the paddles but in car-parks and slow-moving traffic I use D. The problem is that it is always in a gear that feels higher than I would like. DS is a bit too sporty for car-parks and town-centres.

Can the gearbox be recoded to make D a bit more sport-orientated?

You might be better off posting this question in the BMW Coding area:

It is beyond the capacity of simple coding. You'd require extensive knowledge of coding including writing/ tweaking a map (Engine enhancement).

Contact a good mapper and he should be able to help you.

At great cost too, given the time and risk involved.

It is not possible use your car after some time it should adapt to your driving style. Though it will not change completely there is full software for that.
