We did fine without them during our ED. Just don't drive like an idiot and do you due diligence about vignettes and you'll be fine.

Looks like its a station wagon too. They would have been doing the driver a favor by totaling it.

Sport vs M-Sport

False. My GC is an msport with normal brakes and I don't have fogs. Only the convertible keeps the fogs

Front end on the msport 4 series looks better without them anyways.
