...But is this really a reliable way to determine if you have "Dynamic Drive" or not?
I have yet to read any credible information that confirms how to determine if I have Dynamic drive. I see threads where people copy and paste what dynamic drive is and does, and I've read posts where people say they have it due to the fact that their car has "this" or "that" and that's THEIR way of determining they have dynamic drive.
I've even seen where someone lists the VIN decoder to look up and see if there is a "Dynamic Drive" option listed. (Mine does not list it) HOWEVER, in the SAME thread I see where people say their shifter moved to the left displays "DS" in the gage cluster and they say that means they have "Sport" which in turn means they have "Dynamic drive" which mine DOES function as such.
There are so many misleading statements from various people that I am so confused about whether or not I have Dynamic drive or not.....whether or not I have Sport Suspension or not....
Sometimes I feel like I just need to make friends with a BMW expert, invite them over for beers numerous times and pick their brain on bimmers.
