FWIW, We used to have a non sport 2006 X3 and now have a 2011 35i with the DHP option. When I drove our new X3 over a twisty road that I had previously driven the '06 X3 on, I thought our new X3 cornered better. I had the DHP in the sport setting.

The current X3 felt top heavy and a lot more body roll when entering a circular on ramp to 95.
Even with a bad back I'll take control over mushy ride any day.
This was counter-intuitive to me since the '06 X3 is a firmer riding car, but I was impressed at how well our new X3 can go around corners.
