Driver adjustable meaning they can be stiffened by the driver in car. They are NOT passive just not "auto"
So what piece of new BMW technology is that? I've not seen anything that fits that description. Please post a link to what this is all about, as I'm keen to see where I (and we in Europe) are missing something so vital.

BTW, I can't see any new technology in the US configurator for the X3, just the same options as we have over here. Standard passive, sport passive and DDC, what we term Variable Damping Control (VDC) over here in the UK.
