2009 335i sport vs base suspension

Is there a difference between the sport package and base suspension on the *2009* 335i? It looks like the only thing that changes on the sport package are the wheels and seats..?

Search around under ZSP.
There's a difference in springs, shocks, sway bars and ride height.

I was referring to the E92 coupe.

ZSP Sport Package
Includes Shadowline exterior window trim, 18" x 8" front and 18" x 8.5" rear Star Spoke (style 189) alloy wheels with 225/40WR18 front and 255/35WR18 rear run-flat performance tires, increased top speed limiter and 8-way power front sport seats with power adjustable backrest width and 2-way manual headrests and thigh support.

I have read here on a few threads that there is no difference on an E92. What I would love to know is how much the BMW Performance Suspension package that Tisher BMW is selling lowers an E92 over the stock/sport suspension????

Realoem has different struts/shocks listed for the sport vs non sport:

Interesting. The sports suspension on the E92 leaves a 2-2.5" gap above the tires. I can't imagine a suspension on the E92 that was any higher.

I didn't say that the springs were different.
I just saw that there were different dampers.
The springs specify ride height.

Thanks for the clarification. I can't wait to hear your review of the BMW performance suspension. Did you just get springs or the entire kit?

I already have the dampers installed. Search for my review.
The springs are coming next wednesday.
