Default HELLO everyone (:

Hello, I'm new to the world of mini's.
I drive a pepper white 08' Mini Cooper.
I practically love it, I love how greatly it runs. Just wanted to say hi and ask a quick question.
Is the sport button meant to be used on a daily basis? Will it affect the engine in anyway if used on a daily basis?
Thanks Much!

Welcome to mu and no using the sport button is not bad. It tightens the steering and makes the gas petal more sensitive. I use mine everytime I drive my car.

Howdy from Texas and welcome. In my opinion, I would run with the Sport button ON all the time.

Welcome! I don't think if my car had a sport button I would be able to EVER have it OFF! Do the break in thing and you will be fine
