F10 Noob Question - Suspension configuration
I'm in the market for a car to replace my beloved '04 Volvo V70R and one of the cars on the list is the F10 535i (as well as an E61 535 among others).
I test drove a 535 the other day and I am confused by some of the suspension options. Forgive the nOOb question, but I have pondered the manual as well as the online configurator, and what I remember from the window sticker.
The car I drove had the sport package. It did NOT (to the best of my knowledge) have the Dynamic Handling package. Nor did it have the sport automatic option. It also did not have active steering.
The car had the buttons next to the auto shifter that could change the car from comfort, normal, sport and sport plus. The salesman told me that this was changing the suspension, but from the options the car had I didn't believe him. My test drive was so short, though, that I couldn't get a good bead on what WAS changing with changing this setting. So, two questions:
1) What options prompt this system to be added and
2) With the above configuration, what exactly was I changing about the car? The manual is very, very fuzzy on this.
Oh, you'll like this one: the sales guy asked me not to put it into Sport Plus during the test drive since it reduced the stability control system. It was dry, and the most i could get up to was 50 mph on a 3 mile test drive. Please.
