M Sport suspension - same as ZSP?

I have been reading through the threads and there is confusion as to whether the suspension parts and settings are the same or not. I am guessing that it's the same since the rest of the world didn't have the ZSP option. However, I have heard the possibility of spring rate differences and other tweaks. With the seriously crappy roads in rural New Hampshire, I am pushing it with ZSP suspension so anything stiffer is a deal breaker for me.

Also, do we know if the front spoiler is lower than the ZSP as I don't intend for the car to be used for snowplowing.

Any help would be great as I am about to pull the trigger and really hoping the M Sport is going to work.

No idea about the M sport suspension, but it's been discussed here before that a front spoiler will be a bit lower than without, but not significantly so.

Edit: That said, the stock front lip on an E90 is pretty damn low as is and I have the rash to prove it - GAH!

Well the big difference is that, apparantly the M-sport suspension is free if you order the LeMans Blue!

Same suspension in the US no matter if you order ZSP or ZMP. The front is really not noticeably lower, just a half inch or so. Just have to be careful pulling into steep driveways and such.
