Yes, exactly. And this means that with MSport you get the standard suspension, OR you choose *and pay additional for* the Dynamic Handling package.

The web site has never quite managed to explain the distinction between the MSport and Dynamic Handling packages clearly, and there are numerous threads on this blog as a result. A big part of the confusion is that in the US, we don't get the option of the sports suspension that is available in other markets. Hence "Sport Suspension Delete". The latest revision to the BMWUSA build interface is better than it was, but is still confusing. Take another look at the configuration options on BMWUSA. Notice that you can NOT choose the dynamic dampers without getting the Dynamic Handling Package. And click on the DHP label to see it show "Dynamic Handling Package also includes Dynamic Damper Control".

You can get all of the benefits of DHP without MSport. If you get MSport without DHP you will have the standard suspension.
