Sport and M Sport suspensions are identical, I don't know about the short shifter but the knob itself is definitely shorter than the standard one. Some BMWs like my 135i come standard with a short shift kit so I really hope this is the case with the M Sport but I forgot to ask my sales advisor when I ordered mine last Friday...oh well, I guess I'll find out once the car gets here. The only manual car they had on the lot was a 328i Sport Line so I drove that just to see if the changes to the manual transmission were noticeable and they definitely are! Shifts are smoother and at the same time have a more positive engagement. Tough to describe but it's definitely an improvement over the E90s and the E82 that I've had.
