Same dynamic changes happens with M-Sport suspension. However, just to clarify, it isn't more power from the engine, the gear changes up a ratio or 2 and throttle response is sharpened somewhat, making the entire package seem like it has more power, unlike, say an M5, which does actually boost engine power when the 'M' button is pressed.

Still, it is a fun & exhilarating experience going to sport and letting loose, just for a short time (we don't want to get fined or cause a collision etc). Sad thing is that the car starts to open up from 120km/h and feels safer than at 100km/h.

We need BMW to organise a track day for our cars.
