I don't think that's what DCC is asking, Anthony. Firstly, only the Sport EDC setting is static on non-ZCP cars. Normal and Comfort are dynamic. On ZCP cars, however, the Sport EDC setting was changed so that it too was dynamic. Normal and Comfort remained unchanged.

As for why BMW didn't offer the non-EDC ZCP suspension outside of Japan, that's anyone's guess. Roads in Germany are as good as those in Japan, so concerns around the quality of the ride in other countries probably wasn't the only reason. Who knows...
