ARS / 528i

I just orderd a 528i and noticed that Active Roll Stabilization is not offered, as it is on the 535i and 550i. Is this for technical or marketing reasons?

Not available on 528i. They want you to move up to the 535i or 550i. If BMW NA was cool, they would at least offer the plain old sport suspension option, and the 6 speed manual on the 528i. I believe that the 535i actually gets better fuel economy, so BMW for CAFE reasons BMW NA wants the 535i to become the volume line for the 5 series.
