With the F10 Bmw made it too soft to begin with so adding a thicker bar is essentially just bringing it back the traditional Bmw feel. My car isn't harsh as all even in Sport mode. Honestly I like how the car feels going over bumps with the M5 bar more than before. It feels like a nice solid thump where as before it felt loose and bouncy. Keep in mind I also have ACS springs so my ride is already firmer than stock.

Cool, thanks. I'm in an interesting position where I wouldn't mind a more stiff ride in turns, but at the same time I don't want the car to get any bit harsher over bumps. I want my cake and I wanna eat it too.
