Suspensions ?

It looks like there are 3 different suspensions; standard, all wheel drive and sport.

Is the all wheel drive suspension closer to the sport or standard?

It seemed stiffer than the standard, but I did not test drive the sport.

The AWD suspension in pretty much directly in the middle of the 2 other types with the standard 17" rims (on the 330xi). If you add 18" rims to the AWD, then you will be getting closer to the sport suspension but not entirely there (since you can't drop the AWD car as a factory option).

Different characteristics, different fundamentals.

as far as technical specs of the 3 suspension goes, e90fleet please chime in.

I think the AWD uses more steel component instead of Aluminum too.
