Wabba, you can believe what you want, but what you state are not "FACTS." it's an argument based on a misunderstanding of the facts.

for the rest of the folks here, the facts are what they are. DHP is the only way in the US to get dynamic dampers. BMW's own website (which you cite and rely on to argue your point, albeit incorrectly) shows that the only way that the dynamic dampers are added is if you click on the dynamic handling package (or conversely, if you click on "dynamic dampers" it will automatically add the "dynamic handling package").

I previously encouraged you to go to BMW USA website and build a car. Please do this as if you do, it will answer your questions and show you that I'm correct (along with others who have chimed in): "check the M-sport package. you will see that the box "sports suspension delete" is checked by default. now check the box that says "dynamic damper control" under the M-sport package section. you will see that when you do so, the stand alone package named "dynamic handling package" is automatically checked. in other words, you cannot get "dynamic dampers" (shown in the M-sport package section) without getting the stand alone "dynamic handling package."" please do this and then come back and report what happens.

What the BMW website does re dynamic dampers during a build are FACTS. also FACTS are that: 1) there is no car built for the US market that has dynamic dampers WITHOUT speccing out the DHP package; and 2) there are no M-sport ONLY cars (with no DHP package) that have dynamic dampers.
