E60 Sport model vs Non Sport

Is there a suspension height difference between SPORT and Non Sport models?

I know it is Sport Tuned Suspension. What does it mean and what is it consist of?

Thanks

Quote from page 26 of the US press relaese regarding 545i sport Pkg.

" Sport suspension calibration. This more traditional BMW Sport Package features means firmer springs and shock absorbers, plus 15-mm (0.6-in.) lower ride height"
