Exhaust is sportier and most importantly the suspension is incredibly firm, a bit to firm but one should expect this if you get a Msport, unless its an f10

You would think a sedan would be treated with the sportier version but not in this case
My wife drives an X5, about the only thing that I'd agree on is that the steering feels more weighted, and note that I agree with weighted but not responsive.

Maybe the perceived differences arise from 550 vs. 535, but this just doesn't ring true.
