Dynamic Handling package on x-drive GT

I have been searching to drive a car with and without the dynamic handling package (MY2011), since I am considering a purchase of a car with sports package but no dynamic handling. I would greatly appreciate any input from those of you who have driven a car with and without. It has proven a challenge to find a pre-owned with dynamic handling. Also, it's an early MY2011 build. Were there any issues or important changes in the later MY build.

Not being a smart @ss but the topic of Dynamic Handling has been discussed numerous times in the forum. I joined the GT family back in May and I was in your shoes trying to decide yay or nay on DH. Ultimately I decided nay because I wouldn't miss what I never experienced since I had a better chance of winning the lottery than finding a GT on the lot with DH to test drive. I couldn't be happier!

des do a search of my posts i posted a detail review of my drives with and without DH. I have it and love it. The GT is one of my favorite cars i have ever owned...just the the right mix of everything..but i must say not sure i would love it as much without DH. Lex is right you can't miss what you never had.....but it is a totally different driving machine with it..
GET IT...

Detailed 10,000 mile review coming soon....(500 miles to go)
