I don't turn DSC off unless I'm on a track where I know the surface is good. Your mileage may vary...

AND, I don't turn MDM on in the rain, simply because as a DD, I'm happy to let the M save itself if a moment's inattention creates something bad. Bundling into a tree because I'm on a conference call with Taipei and go into a corner harder than normal with no safeguards isn't high on the list of priorities...

So the difference between S5 and D5 is more than sequential shifting as oppose to automatic shifting?
