    I recently had a 328i rental and had a similar experience.
    The different modes change the car's personality in a very noticeable way. Sport was almost too hyper with the throttle mapping. One the other end of the spectrum, Eco Pro was really painful and really dulled the car, although I did knock out an indicated 40 MPG (!!!) on a rush hour largely highway commute (1 hour) ... like you I'm not entirely sure it was worth it.

    That's the beautiful thing about having choices. You can decide if it's worth it to you. Maybe on a long trip it would be OK with me--otherwise I would find the reduced throttle response in traffic annoying. A friend of mine set his car to 'Eco' mode permanently--only concerned with gas mileage, and just got used to the way the car operates in that mode.

    I despise Eco Pro mode... I don't even really like Comfort. I leave it in Sport and customize it to relax the suspension - my car has the adaptive dampers. When I'm not on a highway slog or commuting I'll usually set the steering and suspension back to sport.
