The BMW Dynamic Handling Package is an option package for some BMW models that may include adaptive suspension, roll control, or active steering systems. The package includes either the Adaptive M suspension or Adaptive Drive. The Adaptive M suspension electronically controls the damping rate by adjusting valves in the shock absorbers and can also lower the car by almost half an inch. The system can be adjusted from Comfort to Sport mode and has sensors that monitor each wheel individually, ensuring optimal ride quality and grip.
Adaptive Drive uses Dynamic Drive and Variable Damper Control (VDC) to control the suspension, again with selectable modes from comfortable to sporty. Dynamic Drive allows the system to adjust the roll stabilizers to allow for maximum comfort on smooth, straight roads and reduce body roll through corners. VDC adjusts the dampers on each individual wheel and works with Dynamic Drive to further minimize body roll, increase traction, and reduce stopping distances.
