Its a direct swap..

did you buy an M Sport suspension off of someone ?? or did you get it new from the dealer piece by piece....????

you may have been better off getting the BMW performance suspension if you wanted to stay OEM.

yeah i bought the msport suspension off of someone that got it taken off before delivery(had it swapped for performance susp), so it only has 10 miles on it. It's substantially cheaper then buying performance suspension so i'll be happy with it for a year or two until i can afford coil overs.. college student problems

I thought the msport WAS performance suspension?

Msport is a fair bit lower than non-msport.

from the person i bought it from, performance is more race oriented but the same height as m-sport, msport is "sportier" but still suitable for road worthyness or some crap. They're the same height but have different spring rates and shock tuning i believe.


when we compared my non-sport suspension to his performance suspension, he was about .75" lower then me. i could fit 3 fingers between my tire and wheel well, his could fit 2 in the same area.

Hey guys not trying to thread jack- got a 2010 Sport with supposedly an upgraded performance suspension installed at BMW for the previous owner. I can see it has yellow springs but the stuts look stock? Any one have pics of these two different suspensions.
