Yes from me, just having the option of switching between cruiser, or stiffer/louder hooligan car by flicking a button is good enough for me. :lol:

Comfort is really very soft and smooth, much nicer than my e91 on its m sport chassis.

I didn't have it on my M135i but do have it on the M140i. Personally, I much prefer it. Easier to live with on a day to day basis and impressively smooth for a performance car. So, Yay.

Definitely a Yay from me - have it on my M240i. Its a superb ride / handling upgrade vs my old car.

If I was doing a lot of town or motorway driving I would have spec'd it to access the comfort setting. But I don't, so I didn't.

Didn't spec it originally but after doing some reading around added it on. Wasn't able to test drive a passive model and I found the suspension on my A3 a bit hard at times so went for it as a lot of my driving is towns and motorways

I just moved from M135i, to M140i with Adaptive damping. Far superior in comfort mode, more control on cornering without corkscrewing motion. Sport and Sport plus, nice and firm allowing more control of rear end (car not mine) without being too harsh.
