2013 535i 6 speed

Thinking about ordering one with manual, M sport. Does the M sport already have a sport suspension calibration as shown in configurator if I check the box? Do I need to get adaptive dampers or the Dynamic handling pack? Anyone with a 6 speed manual F10 out there that can comment on it?

There are a few posts out there discussing this here and on Bimmerfest. For USA 2013 there are a variety of the combinations of suspension features you can come up with. It does appear that if you DON'T order DDC or ARS or the "Dynamic Handling Package" (both) you get a slightly more sporty suspension, although I don't think anyone has actually verified different part numbers yet.

Personally, I have just DDC (which includes the standard "suspension" - which I assume is just springs) however I do have AC Schnitzer springs waiting to be installed to add a bit more "sport" to it. Changing from "comfort" to "sport" if you have DDC slightly increases the dampers and you feel a bit more of the road (along with increased throttle response which the sport button does regardless of packages.)

Rest of World has had the other "suspension" option for the last few years, so don't get confused by their inputs.

Great information, thanks.
