Sport vs. M Sport Handling

Any difference in handling? I figure the M Sport bumpers would only come into play at speeds greater than 100 m.p.h.?

Do the M Sport wheels (193) affect the way the car handles, vs. those on the Sport package (195).

I am comparing some new cars, and prefer the Sport wheels over the M Sport by appearance; and even prefer the standard front fender over the M fender, but performance matters a great deal to me.

Thanks for your input!

There should be no difference in handling or any other performance measurement.

I havent heard of any performance differences b/w sports and M-sport. And if you like look of 193s then they are available for cheap over here in classifieds.

We have one M Sport 335d and one Sport 335d and they handle exactly the same.
