Nice car! After two E60's (a 545 and a 550), skipped the F10 and went straight into the M3. Enjoy the new to you M3!

Apparently they are. There's a thread about it. If the info is correct from what everyone in it is saying, it is dynamic for sure in Normal mode. Questionable if it's dynamic in the comfort or sport modes.

The car has EDC (Electronic Damping Control) where you can adjust the stiffness of the suspension...

Ok now I really need to drive an MDCT car. I did not even consider it when I was looking for my car.


Your car looks fantastic. Enjoy!

Great car. But no need to spill out all the specs! Ha. Youre missing the best option - heated seats!

Hey congratulations to you, but you didn't exactly leave a slouch of a car, either. After we picked my M up in Spartanburg in April, my missus was sold on the brand. Fast forward a few months later, and we went out and picked her up a 2012 535! She loves it, and could not be happier, but you're right, they are two different animals! Yin and yang, and wouldn't you know it, mine is white and hers is black! LOL...But hey, enjoy that beautiful M!

The official line is that cars without the competition package have dynamic Comfort and Normal modes, and the competition package made the Sport setting also dynamic.

I haven't driven a ZCP car, but the static Sport mode is practically useless unless you are on glass-like roads.

I too moved from an F10 535i to an M3. The 5 series was nice but it took all of 30 seconds to forget that it ever existed. I should have gone with the M3 from the beginning. With that said, I agree that a 535i and M3 combo would be tough to beat.
