Sport Suspension - Geniune or Aftermarket ? ?

E90 Sport Suspension cost AU$600 (possibly plus Labour) BY BMW Australia.

Is this too expensive?

Should I go for Aftermarket ? ?

Would there be Warranty Problem then?

i think original is safer. bottom line, don't take risk with aftermarket items like suspension and brake equipment. affects warranty too.

Is the suspension between 330i and 330i-sport the same, with the exception of the springs? Or is it a totally different assembly of shocks, sways, ect.

I always thought the sport-330i just came with a lower stance, which ultimately helps you in handling, but nothing more.

With regards to this, BMW states that the sports package has "sports calibration". What does this statement mean?

The ZSP option is more than just springs on the suspension side. It's also dampers and could include different swaybars diameters.

You can tell pretty easy here in the US if your car has zsp or not. Look at the rims, steering wheel and seats.

when you ordered your car, the dealer gave you an itemized list of your equipment, right? take a look there, you should able to find out if you've got the sport package.
