Another DHP vs. Sport Line Question

Getting more serious about possibly going to F30 / F31.

If you get a sedan w/ sport line, or M Sport, you get a stiffer sport suspension, right? Is that also true on the Wagon?

Folding rear seats - Standard, Optional, or not avail?

On the sedans, do the 2014/2015 models have an option for folding rest seats? I'm not seeing it - used to it being part of cold weather package in older BMW's.
