I agree. I went from a 3series 335i Msport to a 535xi Msport with the DDC and the ride quality is 1000x better in the 5 for comfort. It doesn't handle as well as the 3 as expected even with DDC but the car takes on bumps like its nothing. Hitting the same bumps in my old 3 would knock the cup of coffee out of your hands
