    Ditching run flats makes quite a difference as well. We had a e91 335d on standard tyres but we took the car back due to numerous issues and bought another which has run flats and the ride is noticably harsher. They are coming off once they need changing.

    Depending on how much cash you want to spend, have a chat with these guys. They are very highly regarded when it comes to chassis and suspension setup.....

    stock m sport is fine for me on mixed roads. I have 18in mv3s.

    Quieter and a bit smoother and more 'supple' since i ditched rfts.

    Ride on my old 318d es was a bit smoother with 17s and stock suspension but not majorly.

    M sport is better all rounder, not a major sacrifice.

    But yeh not experience of aftermarket. M sport is low enough for me and feels good.

    MSport also uses sachs. I changed my rears with sachs and the OEM shocks i took off were exactly the same.

    I have msport setup with 19s and it's okay but not really built for british roads.

    Did you notice any improvements when you changed the rear shocks?

    Yes, but that's because my shock was leaking and had near enough lost all it's oil and wasn't operating properly.
