Dynamic Handling - Worth It?
 
About to pull the trigger on a 14 35 and am considering dynamic handling. Anybody have it and is it really worth a $30 additional lease expense per month?

Dynamic Handling - Worth It?
 
YES. I test drove both.

Drive both and decide for yourself. If you are happy with the comfort mode, then there is no need for adaptive suspension. If you want better handling and a firmer ride, go for adpative suspension.

Worth it only if you want it. I don't have it. I do not miss it.

Dynamic handling delivers fun and flexibility.
I heartily recommend it.

I waived the extra costs for this feature, not a car person. The vehicle is mostly used for short commutes and family drives.

From my other thread, it seems it really depends on what you are looking for. Most people get it for a better sports mode, rather than a more plush ride. We thought the car is already sporty enough without the DHP, so we saved the money towards an engine upgrade to a 35i. Now waiting for production.

I agree, if one feels that comfort mode is good enough, them DHP is just a waste of money.

Something else to go wrong after the warranty runs out -- and I seriously doubt you will get one cent more for the car in a future trade or sale because you have it. It might make a private party sale easier, but trade/sale really depends on the condition, condition, condition of the car. Which of course includes mileage.:angel:

My German shepherd and I went to the mountains of Western Maryland yesterday - the trip to and back in sport on country secondary roads was fun - fun - fun, and the very compliant comfort mode made short work of the mountain dirt/gravel logging roads that took us to our trail head. If you lead an active out door/sports oriented life style - you will especially appreciate the versatility and fun of DHP - especially in tandem with the 3.5 engine.
