Suspension confusion

Does anyone know for 2013 335 sport line whether the 'sport suspension' is the same as the suspension that the M Sport Line gets? In the on line builder, the Sport Line summary column shows "M Sport Suspension", but in the brochure for Sport Line is just says 'sport suspension'. thanks!

I looked up my Sport Line's VIN # on the russian decoder and it said M Sport Suspension although it is not on the window sticker, I looked up the part #'s for the struts and the springs and they are different from the other lines.

Either way, the car is boaty at best. I have H&R sport springs on it at the moment until some better coilovers come out and it's basically just bouncy and slightly slower on the track so I'd go super sport springs if you just want the low look.

It also depends on the country, in NZ and AU Sport line does NOT include M Sport suspension, it's just a trim level. M Sport does of course and feels much better because of it.

If you're in the US then Sport line sport suspension = M sport suspension.

Which is an option. In the US Sport line includes M Sport suspension, but not in AU and NZ.

In my experience some dealers don't know the difference. They get confused by the 'Sport+/Sport/Comfort/Eco Pro' mode and think this is affecting the suspension. It does not.

According to this the M sport includes Adaptive M Suspension but not variable sport steering, which would explain why DHP is still avail. I could be wrong or confused but it seems pretty clear according to that chart

That site's wrong - M Sport does not include Adaptive suspension

And yes in the US, the M Sport and Sport Line have the same suspension

See the ordering guide for MY13 here

It's not just some site... It's bmw's official website lol. I don't see why they would include it on their website if it isn't true.

The ordering guide is BMW's official word on what is and isn't available on the cars. The web site isn't, and has a number of well-known errors.

Yes, M sport suspension mean Sport version with M trim and bodykit only, the suspension is the same, but M Performance is another story IMHO.

So springs only made the perf worse. Why does everyone say its BETTER haha
