Sport Suspension on AWD models?

Does anyone know if the sport suspension is available on the 325xi or the 330xi models? Please let me know if you have any information. All I have seen is a price list that was updated in April and it shows that the "sport package" does not include the sport suspension, is this true?

Yep, AWD and the sports suspension are mutually exclusive choices.

Correct...According to the Product Information book, "No Sports Suspension...as in the previous "xi" models; the AWD chassis has its own specific suspension calibration.

But you do get everything else in the 325i/330i sport package. There are different wheels. For the 325xi ZSP, you get Star Spoke #159, and for the 330xi ZSP you get Star Spoke #158.

Note that for like $600, you can upgrade to the 162 wheels and tires on the 330xi if you get the sport pkg. Of course, you'd have to get winter tires, but that would be a sweet option.
