BMW 5 Series: Adaptive M chassis


The Adaptive M chassis is a controllable sport chassis/suspension. This system reduces undesirable vehicle motion when using a dynamic driving style or traveling on uneven road surfaces.

This enhances the driving dynamics and driving comfort depending on the road surface condition and driving style.

General information

The system offers several different damping settings.

The damping settings are assigned to the different driving modes of the Driving Dynamics Control.
