Sort of,
- There are more items standard, including the Driving Dynamic Control that gives user control of accelerator response characteristics, engine response, the power steering characteristics, the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) thresholds and, on automatic models, the shift characteristics of the transmission.
I believe some of this was available with 2TB - Sport Auto Transmission, but some may have been part of 2VA - Adaptive Drive that cam with ZDH package.

- The "Sport" elements have mostly just been re-factored.

--Below holds for 535i--

For 2011,
The $2,200 Sport Package (ZSP) was more cosmetic:
- 255 Sports leather steering wheel
- 2K3 19" Light alloy V-spoke wheels style 331-with performance run-flat tires
(19x8.5, 245/40 R19 front and 19x9.0, 275/35 R19 rear)
- 456 Multi-contour seats
- 760 Shadowline exterior trim
- 840 Increased top speed limiter

The $2,700 Dynamic Handling Package (ZDH) gave you the configurability and adaptive control:
- 223 Electronic Damping Control - moved to ZSP for 2012
- 229 Active Roll Stabilization (ARS)
- 2VA Adaptive Drive

For 2012,
The $3,600 Sport Package (ZSP) now adds 223 - Electronic Damping Control from the 2011 ZDH option
From BMW brochure, DDC "instantly adjusts shock absorbers from the softest to the firmest settings. The result is exceptional ride comfort and fluid handling at all times during changes in vehicle speed, load or road and driving conditions."
- 223 Dynamic Damper Control *new*
- 255 Sports leather steering wheel
- 2K3 19" Light alloy V-spoke wheels style 331-with performance runflat tires
- 456 Multi-contour seats
- 760 Shadowline exterior trim
- 775 Anthracite headliner
- 840 Increased top speed limiter

For 2012, the ARS option for $2,500 includes both ARS and 2VA Adaptive Drive. Ths is the same as the 2011 ZDH package, except 223 has been moved to the Sport Package:
- 229 Active Roll Stabilization (ARS)
- 2VA Adaptive Drive

So, the full sport and adjustability options went up $1,200 for 2012 ($4,900 -> $6,100)
