As far as I understand, you'll only get flat cornering if you have VDC or Adaptive Drive installed as options. M Sport suspension is completely passive, so the sport button will not firm up the ride.

You're absolutely correct, I have AD/VDC on my 535d and, using it as much as I do, I incorrectly assumed the OP had the same configuration. Just re-read your spec list 'Pacecar'; sorry if I gave you any false hopes.
