I do not believe this is accurate, at least for US cars. M-sport alone will NOT automatically add Dynamic Dampers (i.e., dynamically adjustable dampers). Only adding the Dynamic Handling Package ("DHP") -- which btw is highly recommended -- will add the dynamic dampers, which have the protruding cylinder from the strut shown in the picture in this post

I have not seen proof (by pics, etc) in this forum or others of a US car that has M-sport alone (without DHP) that has dynamic dampers....
