Does X3 35i M-Sport have DDC?

Does the M-Sport package include Dynamic Driving Control?
Does it include the button to switch between Normal, Sport and Sport+?

Or do you have to order the DHP option to get the DDC?

Search the forum...this is probably the most discussed thing out there... see the most recent thread with a lenghty explanation from me on what it is. net net...DDC and DHP are completely separate things. Read the below

also to add... the M-sport package for the most part is a cosmetic package only not a performance package...however it does include the sport auto tranny and DDC and performance control....so it's kinda performance oriented but not that different than the regular 35i. See this link for m-sport package.

Oh man I agree...sport mode is just so much fun...crazy how responsive it is that way...too responsive sometimes!! I'm sure sport mode isn't the best thing for gas mileage but in the end it's worth it! I'm mixing it up...if I'm on the highway or running the kids somewhere I stay in normal mode.

When this X is broken in after 3K miles, I'm dying to throw it in sport+ and see what she has around some of the B roads in my area... Sport+ enables DTC mode...now we don't have performance tires so you actually need to be careful b/c the car will definitely overpower those tires...however DTC mode should bring a different level of driving...you'll just need to let your b@lls out to do so!
