Sorry to change the topic.
I am looking to finalise the order of a 328i sportline. I am tossing up the adaptive dampers. Most magazines say they are mandatory but the dealer said they really are not needed. I am after a reasonably performing car but have no intention of taking it to track or anything like that. The dealer didn't have 2 similar cars with and with out adaptive suspension to drive. The standard suspension was a softer than my old but never felt awful.
I was wondering if anyone had driven similar cars with and without adaptive dampers under Australian conditions and what your thoughts are. I could probably stretch the extra money but I will be running out of wife acceptance.
