M Performance Chassis

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The M Performance Parts catalog says:

With the M Performance chassis, your BMW 3 Series
experience becomes even more unique. The shock
absorbers, wishbones and stabilisers have been
extensively tested and coordinated using strict
motorsport criteria. The result is even more dynamic
driving that will amaze on every straight and every
corner.

Here are some questions:

Can any F30 model, such as a non Sport Line 328i, be fitted with the M Performance Chassis? Is the M Performance Chassis adjustable like the 2VF Adaptive M Suspension? Any idea on cost to buy and install? Anything else pop into mind?

Thanks!

Info on that is not out yet
But it has been said it was developed with a track bias .So may be harsh on the road

Wishbones ? Does this mean it comes with new wishbones ? It wouldn't surprise me.

One other interesting question is what happens to those having the M adaptive suspension and wanting to install the M Performance suspension ? Does this also come in 2 versions, with adaptive stuff or without (huge price difference) ? Or is the adaptive stuff just deleted and will not not have any effect after installing the M Performance suspension ? It does happen on the e90 when the foglights are deleted (car needs to be recoded) when you install the BMW Performance front bumper.

Since its intended more for track driving I doubt there will be a Adaptive version

Thanks. Yes, that's right.

That applies to exterior cosmetic parts.
