Just reorder and get what you want. X5 production flips so quickly anyway I'd just do it. Adaptive drive is so much better than standard suspension.

Oh well...
I can tell you with confidence that Adaptive Drive is only important if you want closer to Lexus suspension comfort with great cornering. The typical BMW suspension is very good and lean is not that bad in default.

I regret getting the Premium package. Its makes the car too luxurious and I have to watch how my nephew handles the interior.

I don't think my dealer would do this. They claimed they already got stuck with a duplicate of my order because they mistakenly ordered it with 20s and didn't catch it until it flipped...

How do I get them to change their mind?
