2003 Z4 sport vs non sport suspension

Has anyone driven both the sport and non sport Z4. My 2003 is the Sport and I do love how it handles. I may be moving to a location that has much rougher terrain. I was thinking that the extra inch of travel may be of value to me. Thoughts?

Can someone please chime in on this? If its worthwhile to swap, if anyone wants to do a straight up trade, let me know. If not, I was wondering what parts would need to change. Shock and Springs or just one or the other. If I am going to buy new parts, would I be better off with the post 2006 variety? I am told they ride better.

Are you moving to an area that has no paved roads? I'd not even worry about it. I've lived up in North Dakota and they have rough roads, but my corvette loved them. Long straights and tight curves. Not much worse than that other than upstate NY.
