If you guys followed the European model, you wouldn't have the confusion, you have two 'DDC' components. Dynamic Damping Control and Dynamic Driving Control (or do you use Drive Dynamic Control).
We have DDC and VDC. Drive Dynamic Control, the switch function which doesn't have to have adaptive suspension included, and Variable Damping Control, the active damping.
No confusion this side of the pond.
BTW, I'm familiar with all the configuration differences, as I have the full Adaptive Drive package in my 535i.... VDC,(DDC) ARS, DDC and SAT.
With Comfort, Normal, Sport and Sport+ on the toggle.
