Best XDrive ride: standard, or adaptive on "Comfort"?

We'll be ordering our second BMW fairly soon, and don't want to make a mistake on this:

Which delivers the most comfortable ride on an XDrive, the standard suspension? Or the adaptive suspension/DHP package set on the "COMFORT" setting?

I know this is a subjective area, but I'd really, really appreciate any thoughts you may have on this.

I've test driven a 328xi with the base/standard passive set-up. I thought it was great, especially compared to our 2011 E90 328xi. But . . . if the adaptive COMFORT setting is even better riding (our dealer has no DHP-equipped cars to try), I'd spring for that. I'd use the SPORT setting, too, but would primarily be interested in optimizing comfort with the adaptive's adaptiveness.
