I then learnt that the "Adaptive M Suspension" is pretty much VDC as on the F10/F11 long after I placed my order, so I though "ahh shite!" VDC made such a change on the test cars I had so I was frustrated! If it was called "Variable Damper Control" and not "Adaptive M Suspension" then I would've ticked the box.

Thankfully, I really like the standard suspension and it's so much more comfortable than my 330d so I'm happy! It's also still stiff enough to feel the road and maintain composure with very little body roll.
Sometimes less is more. A basic functional suspension that delivers on all fronts that is lithe, tactile, agile, with a timeless design and simple to maintain can be better then all the complicated high speed gizmos that can be difficult to maintain over time and fragile. Your golden.
