Says 10mm in the brochure, although it's probably as accurate as believing an order taker, sorry sales executive. Unless it's fixed at 10mm - can make up for the fact on an xDrive car you can't have m sport suspension, but you can have adaptive. Go figure.

Thing is, it's unnecessary on a road car, and it just seemed a complete waste of what was, otherwise, a reasonable car...

I find the M Sport suspension on my F30 fine. You drove one with the set up you ordered, you were happy, that's all that matters..
Yea, think Audi put rocks in their suspension units - they have no idea about suspension, unless it's magnetic ride, then much better.

An M Sport vehicle (read wheel drive) will have M Sport (firmer) suspension.

On the contrary, Audi have one of the most sorted suspensions in their S, RS line up....leaps and bounds ahead of BMW at the moment.
