Choice of wheel is purely a personal one based on looks, I wasn't keen on the design of the 19s.
I went for the passive rather than active M sport suspension. I tried the active and (for me ) it was waste of time. I prefer my cars firmly suspended. The passive suspension is superbly judged and a revelation over the E90.
Big difference over the 330d is just how quiet and smooth the engine is. First tank of fuel looks like coming out circa 36mpg.
I promise anyone who has an F30 MSport on order you will not be disapointed.
I am currently driving the 382i F31 and have on order the 330D M Sport touring, the diesel is miles quicker, this 328i needs revs and lots of them to get it going IMO.
