Dynamic Handling Pkg for 2013 X3 35i ?

In selection out options for a 2013 X3 35i, BMW site warns that the Dynamic Handling Package deserves serious consideration and one should consult their selling dealership.

I don't see this same warning for the 2013 28i X3.

Is their something in the 35i that one needs to be concerned about ??

Should one get this option? I live in San Diego area.

That's very strange. Where did you see this "warning". There's lots of information about DHP here. Above in "Search This Thread" type in: Dynamic Handling Package and you'll find tons of information .

Dynamic Handling

The notice appears on the bmwusa web site in the build your own vehicle section. Specifically, there is a footnote next to the places where the Dynamic Handling Package option is listed. As I mentioned it only appears on the X3 35i vehicle build.

So, the question remains is the Dynamic Handling Package a worthwhile $1400 option ?

You can do a search. If you want the ability to stiffen your suspension for sportier handling then you would want this option. I wish I had gotten it but then again, don't really need the stiffer suspension. Don't know if its really that much softer in comfort mode as I find my regular suspension super comfy relative to my previous e90. :-)

Are you a 'spirited' driver? If so, then DHP may be for you. If the primary use of your X3 is to ferry kids around town then perhaps not. See if you can find a demo with DHP and test it out. Sales reps rarely do a good job of explaining the option. I love it, but it's an individual choice. There are more X3s without DHP than with. There's also a small subset of those who didn't order DHP who now wish that they had.

Isn't the "Normal" mode with DHP a less firm ride than the normally sprung model that has only the factory set suspension? ergo "Normal" on a DHP equipped X3 is more "comfortable" than an X3 without DHP?
