I suppose one thing is the limitation of having just 2 base settings, can't be too far apart, or there would be complaints of it being "too different".

Driving the 5-series with 3 base settings, I'd imagine gives a wider spread. I know if I only had the comfort and sport modes, I'd be saying they are too different. Typically I use normal mode, as the sport mode is too firm and ride quality deteriorates on our poor surfaces. Sport and comfort are great on better road quality, then I can pick the firmer ride, or magic carpet.

BTW, for the 5-series I rate Adaptive Drive as the best option available.

there is four settings in the adaptive suspension,eco pro through to sport+,im sure the eco pro just softens the engine/gearbox maps and not the suspension though
