It's an important question for me. I'm looking at exactly the same models as you are, Lux vs. M Sport.
Anything you can say about the general feel or "gestalt"/aesthetic feel/"aura" of one versus the other would be GREATLY appreciated!
I've driven a number of F30's with the standard suspension, and with the
M adaptive set to "comfort" the ride is excellent, smooth, and controlled.
Great for everyday commuting and highway drives.
Due to the firmer sport springs coupled with the supple damping of the adaptive dampers the ride is better than the standard non sport susp.
And, then you have the option to firm up the damping.
And the car sits 10mm lower, gives it a nicer sport sedan look too.
