What 'range' does the adaptive suspension cover - more or less firm than standard in comfort and more or less firm than M sport in sport.

If you are referencing firm and M-Sport suspension as one and the same, let me put your mind at ease. As terrific as the M-Sport suspension is, it is not at all firm. If you want firm, check out an E90 with sports suspension. Now that is very firm. I had 7 years of it. I was used to it.

Now in the F30, the ride is very, very smooth rolling on those wonderful 19" wheels. So the F30 M-Sport removes the reported over softness of the standard suspension and gives a fantastic ride. The adaptive is the next step, especially if you travel cross country often and have to navigate through twisty, windy roads. Or if you just want it.

Ahhhh - imagine, the day to day slog of travelling to work in your F30, all alone along some spectacular twisty, windy roads, changing gears with your flappy paddles, travelling at whatever (safe) speed you want.

As the old man once said, "Life wasn't meant to be easy."
