Before I used to bash people who drove in P400 mode a lot.....which makes no sense when you buy an M, even if you're in the city. The throttle response difference, extra power, etc.....why'd you get the M if you mostly keep in P400?

Fast forward......

Well, I ruptured my Achillies Tendon and had surgery on my right foot/leg (driving foot). I'm forced to drive with my left, which is a bit uncomfortable, but very doable. That said, P400 is makes it a LOT smoother since the throttle isn't nearly as response, and I'm a little herky-jerky driving left footed at low speeds. Never thought I'd say this, but for the first time I'm glad I have P400. :cheers:

Sorry to hear about your injury. Wishing you a speed recovery...... becareful driving, I know that if I had to drive with my left foot (other than a clutch) it would interesting to say the least.

It's always interesting how pressing clutch with left foot is totally natural yet pressing the gas feels wrong. Good luck and speedy recovery.

I'd hit a tree If I had to use my left foot as the gas. Good Luck.

Let nobody ever say that P400 is the Achilles heel of the M5. ;- )
