Is it possible to delete "225 sport suspension delete"?

Hi, I'm ordering a 2012 X5 diesel with Sport Activity Package. I noticed that it automatically comes with option "225 sport suspension delete." Does anyone know if it is possible to spec the car so that it does not have that option and instead would come with option "226 sport suspension" as on the M packaged cars. Presumably this is done by BMW to cater to the US market, not sure if it can be changed or not. Any info is appreciated.
Thanks!

You need to order the $3500 adaptive drive option

I am under the impression that Adaptive Drive includes electonically controlled shocks/swaybars that change characteristics based on conditions. It is not the same as the "226 Sport Suspension" included as part of M Sport Package on xDrive35i Sport Activity. I understand that 226 Sport Suspension consist of traditional stiffer springs/shocks package and maybe bigger anti roll bars that are static. Is it possible to spec a US X5d with the same stiffer shocks/springs that come on xDrive35d Sport Activity w/ M Sport Package?

BMW did away with the sport suspension except on M Sport models. If you want a sportier suspension you have to buy adaptive drive for $3500.....ouch.

Get the M sportpaket and the 19" all-season wheels, or pony up for the Adaptive Drive.

Correct.

AD is a different beast.

You'd like to think BMW NA could just ship you one as if you were anywhere else in the world... (ie with the sport)

Sigh

M Sport Package is only available on xDrive35i Sport Activity; not available on diesels. So the consensus is that you can't change what suspension Sport Activity Package comes with in the US.
