So is the Sport button retrofittable? I have Cooper D manual - my dealer says 'No' but I suspect they cant be bothered - I suspect all it needs is a button and a bit of wire from the button to the ECU (and a bit of programming to turn it on) but maybe I am wrong??

I would supect that your dealer maybe right. whilst the fitment of the button might be easy, it may very well be a car coded component which would mean the car would have to be recoded. It certain cases this is not possible as the code assigned to the car is controlled by the factory and cannot be altered.
