Glad you got that from my post. I came here to make that point explicitly.

Even if you never touch the button, the car is still reading the road and adjusting the dampers electronically to achieve the optimum damping level.

The button just changes what that optimum level is. A passive damper cannot achieve the same level of ride and handling compromise than a semi-active damper can. Unless you know you're going with coil-overs right away, I consider this option a must have.
