Msport suspension (704) now available on orders

I just ordered my 2014 535i Msport. It has a build or completed date of the first or second week of September. If you've been waiting for the 704 suspension to order, wait no more! Here's my build sheet.

I also struck a deal for the parts dept to purchse the RFT off of my 535 when it touches down at the dealership. I'll have a set of Michelin PSS ready to go on!

You probably already know this but adding the sport auto with paddle shifters would also (I believe) give you the "Sport +" mode and launch control. Not sure if that is important to you but just a heads up in case you were unaware. Someone can please correct me if I am wrong.

Gator, I was unaware of this. How can I find out if this is true? I thought you didn't have adjustable suspension on the 704 suspension?

Right, it does not give you adjustable suspension (only with DHP)... without DHP it just adjusts steering and throttle response and some other things. I think Sport + defeats some things like stability control too when you want that...

Under the standard specs it lists this for the transmission "8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission with Sport and Manual shift modes and Adaptive Transmission Control (ATC)"

If you order the sport transmision with paddle it lists this :

"8-speed Sport Automatic transmission with Adaptive Transmission Control provides extremely fast synchronized shifting in either the Automatic shift mode or by the race-inspired steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters."

Yea the transmission shifts faster and the shifter is thicker , and you get paddles that's for sure as far as the other stuff I'm not sure.

I was basing the Sport + comment on a post by K-A here.

No problem man, again the only thing I'm 100% sure is the quicker shifting the nicer shifter with leather boot, the paddle shifters. But that alone is worth it i think.

There you go then sport+ is part of sat. I wonder if launch control is also part of it. Another curiosity of mine is does the 535d turn off less than the 535i( auto start stop) test drove one and it never turned off.
