A F30POST member shares his feedback and review of the F30 3 Series M Sport Adaptive versus M Sport Passive suspensions, on otherwise identical cars.
The test cars were both F30 330d M Sport, Servotronic Steering, 18″ Wheels, Bridgestone tires, and in Sport Mode.
Here is the F30 328i M Sport looking beautiful in a recent photo shoot. The car belongs to site member scott@bmwhn and looks especially good with Style 373M OEM wheels (from the 6 series M Sport) fitted, paired with yellow M Performance brakes.
