So, here's the word from BMW of Manhattan. First off, let me say that their service department is absolutely top notch. They are not only competent and knowledgeable but, they went out of their way to make sure every concern was addressed and that I was comfortable during my stay.
As far as Dynamic Pro on the early production 2017 models, it looks like it was available as a paid add on at the time of purchase. To add it later requires a special order for the software upgrade which must be installed within a short window of time. I'll be heading back down next Thursday to have this done so, I can test whether Dynamic Pro is less intrusive.
Interestingly, none of the dealerships I spoke with knew about the Dynamic Pro option on the early 2017 Models including the sales team and service department at BMW of Manhattan until they researched the issue further.
I'll keep you all posted as I learn more.
As a side note, while there I had the Mitas E-07 Plus's mounted and immediately rode almost 3hrs home through Friday Manhattan traffic and wild thunderstorms with flooding on the Taconic State Parkway and the tires were fantastic! I watched countless weekenders in their 6 figure SUVs panicking and hydroplaning through pools of water. I had no problems breaking hard or riding at speed to get past those who seemed destined for the ditch.
I didn't test the grip at speed on any really twist roads (I like to scuff in my new tires even when its dry before pushing them.) but, the highway ramps and some deliberate swerving on local roads were uneventful and seemed promising in the very wet.
