Superb description. The suspension under these conditions feels as if it is trying to solve a problem it does not know how to address - and guesses until something works.

I wish BMW had gone with the vastly superior magnetic ride control found on General Motors cars (introduced ten years ago on a Cadillac) and now on Corvette, Ferrari, and Audi and others. It is much quicker, more planted, more responsive, linear.

Hopefully BMW can get up to speed.
