I found the quote I read earlier; it's from the latest Autocar magazine which compared the 2012 320d vs it's Merc equivalent. I can't link it here because every scan I found was from a competing forum so my post would probably get axed. But you can easily find it by search google for "320d autocar mercedes comparison".

Anyway here's the quote from the article I found interesting:
"BMW's engineers tell us that an M Sport suspension set-up (which comprises different springs and dampers from regular or variable suspended 3-series) will not ride as as harshly as the adaptive system in its Sports or Sports+ mode - because unlike with the adaptive dampers, M Sport drivers will have to live with it all the time."
