If you track, and if you would like the additional safety net, MDM is very useful. It can teach you bad habits like mashing the throttle and not think about what you are doing though. Driving on a track with DSC off teaches you how to properly control the throttle. If you won't track the car, it can still be useful in icy/wet conditions, especially in the case of an emergency where you have to react in a drastic manner. At any rate, MDM does a pretty good job in keeping the rear from coming around. I find full DSC to be too intrusive and almost never drive with it on. It's too bad BMW is making folks buy an entire package just to have MDM.
