Question M-Sport vs. Sport - Is there a suspension difference??

Currently own a 2007 335i E90, and looking to get a new 335i. I'm debating between a sedan with either Sport or M-Sport.

I like the cosmetic offerings of the M-Sport package, but is there a difference in suspension??

I tried searching, but couldn't find anything.

Thanks!!

I think Euro has a lower spring compression rate for some odd reason

The early euro msport did not have a lower ride; it had zsp springs, taller and stiffer bumpstops, stiffer dampers and a 14mm rear sway..
