ARS Active Roll Stabilization???

Anyone know if the ARS option is worth having on the F02? Would setting the car in sport mode stiffen the suspension enough to keep the car flat on turns? I currently have an 07 E66 Sport with ARS and plan on finalizing my order on a '13 MSport. Thanks.

I personally would not own another BMW without it. It makes the driving experience so much more intuitive. After having it, not having it and getting it back - I am a believer.

Had it in my '11 550i M Sport, and the '09 535 M Sport, and I think the '07 750i Sport had it too. Don't have it in my '12 AH7Li (wasn't available) and I really miss this option. Active Roll Stabilization is a must IMO.

It's a must have.

It depends on the type of roads you drive. I had it in California, and loved it - on 3 cars. But out here in Texas, where it's flat and perpendicular roads, it's wasted. Even if it isn't used, there is no downside to getting it, so why not?
