Question Is the Dynamic Handling pkg worth it?

Im looking at a X3 3.5 but am wondering about the worth of the dynamic handling package. For those who have taken delivery or even an extensive test drive, do the different settings make a whole lot of difference? Would you choose that option again if you could change your mind? Thanks!

Another vote for ANYONE who has driven two X3's to compare: one with the Dyn Hand Pack and one without.

What I think many of us would like to know is given the same wheel set up and everything else being equal how does the non DHPackage X3 compare to the DHPackage NORMAL setting and the other settings as well.

Anyone?

I haven't driven a non dynamic handling x3 yet, but after driving one with it - I knew I had to have it. I'd get it for the immediate throttle response and the super quick shifts alone. The ability to go from normal suspension on streets full of pot holes like we have in MN to the ability to turn up the handling when you want to play is very appealing to me - but this is coming from someone who has never driven a car without it though. I may get the opportunity to drive one without this saturday.
