Dynamic Handling Pachage

I need help. I ordered my new 535 and it came in. Only to realize we forgot to add the Dynamic Handling Package. I have the Sport Pachage but not DHP. Can anyone comment how important that option is. Is it something you only feel driving the car hard or everyday city driving?

And it requires a lot of practice before you will start appreciating it. On the other hand, people complain about being disconnected from the road... So, no, you are not missing out much...

I am ambivalent about ZDH. Initially, I didn't order it, but changed the order at the last minute to include it. Not sure if I did the right thing or not. It's pretty expensive and adds complexity and I don't know how useful it is. I decided against IAS (4 wheel steering) after I read complaints about tracking problems and expense associated with aligning this system on the 7 series.

I was ambivalent, too, but ended up doing the same thing. I still am not sure what exactly it adds (or lacks without it), as everyone is getting and giving conflicting information. So, I ordered it and am hoping it's worth it.

I did skip IAS. After having it on my 7 (and growing to hate it), I will never order it again.
