Adaptive Suspension - question

It feels to me that the Sport and Sport+ settings weight the steering a bit, hardening it up on center and reduce the power-steering boost. True fact?

Sport and sport-+ do alter the amount of steering boost.

Yep sport makes the steering heavier. Sport + even more.

Likewise.

And steering is different from the adaptive suspension. Even cars without the adaptive suspension (like mine) get variable steering weight via the Sport button.
