There isn't much difference between F15 and F16 in terms of handling. Unlike E71, stability bar and torque vectoring are not standard on F16. You need to add DHP if you want good handling, but DHP is also available in F15.
E70 with Sport Package only has the Adaptive M Suspension, no? Or did you have DHP on the E70? I would have thought E70 + M sport would still handle worse than an F16.

Also I thought F16 included torque vectoring that was not included standard on the E71. Maybe my dealer is blowing smoke?

Assuming DHP in both F16 and F16, I would assume the F16 would handle better?

My thing is I don't want body roll, or the least amount possible. I want it to drive as much like a 550i as possible.
