Have a 2014 X5 50i M Sport w/DHP. First BMW we've ordered with DHP. Wish I had done it earlier. Torque vectoring is nothing short of amazing. Love it.

Can't help with the X5 but as a data point had vented seats on our 2012 550GT. Utterly useless. Vowed never to buy the option again.

I respectfully disagree. I wouldn't want to own a 3 year old BMW with over 66k miles. IMHO annual high mileage is one of the reasons to consider leasing.
