M's pre-config'd for what I like, in fact except coilovers my suspension is M.

Over-boost well done - BMW did the R&D to make it right!
BMW must have changed their suspension or tuned it differently on my 2011 than on the previous years of the 335i? I'm not sure when they did this, but I have no complaints about a rough ride like Captain Audio and others experienced on earlier cars. This modification may have produced a bit of the uncertain feeling I get when I push the car around decent bends in the road. But, it's not bad handling by any means. The suspension is what I'll call more pliable and better able to handle most road conditions.

Current Stablemates:
'12 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet (MT); '11 BMW E93 335is (DCT); '08 BMW E60 535xi
