Mein Auto: 12 MSPT 535 & MSPT X5 5.0

Regardless that particular vehicle felt like I needed a vice to turn the steering wheel while driving.
It did not have active steering as far as I know.
Then again first time driving w AD.
Jumped in a 2012 5.o w reg sport suspension non AD with 20"s
Steering felt a lot looser although still controlled.

Since my wife will be driving this vehicle more than me, I can't imagine she'll Njoy the AD
Being barely 5ft. Small gal....lucky me

Although ultimate test is going to be test driving the 2011 Msport and seeing if there is a big difference between it and the 09 msport

I know newer technology , tranny etc

I'll keep u updated
It will all work out in the end....and if it hasn't worked out yet, its not the end!

2012 Msport X5 +Prem Sound+Cold Weather+Top/Side Cameras+Soft Close Doors+BMW Apps
