I'm sure some are still convinced they have DDC, even though they don't have the hardware. Yes, the opinion was that strong, as if the suspension had some active components, without buying the active suspension packages.
tango131, and the pictures... you X3 guys get a single proportional valve on your struts. We 5-series guys get the full ZF Sachs CDCe package with two proportional valves, one for compression and one for rebound damping. Makes the system even more advanced and controlled. Plus the extra 'normal' base setting on the toggle switch, gives us three distinctive suspension modes ahead of sport+.
Are 4x4 5 series heading for the UK soon? I vaguely remember 4x4 3 series are meant to be coming. It might be difficult to wean myself off the extra ride height of an SUV- the X3 is my second SUV.
