Don't believe the picture? Read what BMW says on their site (next image).
Now if you don't get it yet, have a look at the video I took from my car which IS equipped with the OPTIONAL dynamic dampers. You will note that when the "Driving Experience Control" button is activated (located beside the shifter -next picture), sport mode permits a selection of sport settings for the dampers and steering and/or just the drive-train.
Just to back this up- I didn't go for the Dynamic Dampers (because I couldn't get a road test). When I select Sport Mode- I just get the option of showing Sport Display- nothing more.
If I go for another BMW after the current X3 I'll probably give Dynamic Dampers a go- hopefully they'll be standard by then
