550i Build Question (M-Sport/ARS)

Hello,

I am about to place an order for a 550i and am going with the M-Sport option with the Dynamic Damper Control option selected which is another $1K based on feedback here on the forums.

I have also read a lot about Integral Active Steering and Active Roll Stabilization. IAS is a $1750 option and the only way to get ARS is via the Dynamic Handling Package which also includes DDC is $3500. So for $2500 I get the adaptive drive.

I know Dynamic Handling is debated here a lot but if I went with that is it worth it without IAS? I unfortunately have not been able do drive a car with DDC/IAS/ARS because the dealer does not order cars with these options for inventory purposes. I went with DDC as the majority of the comments here were very positive on it.

I don't think I want to spring for both the DHP and IAS but I'm wondering if DHP alone is really going to be worth it.

Thanks!

It's a no brainier, do it.

For an extra, 3% you can change the entire car.

I didn't get it and regretted it. I hated the ride in my 550 until I put on kwv3's and m5 sway bar.

For less money you still have the ddc, warranty, etc.

Thanks for the feedback, just so I'm clear your suggesting just adding DHP and skipping the IAS?

Nevermind - this is the wrong thread for this question. Re-posting under the build/order forum. My apologies!
