Remember that all 135i coupes have the sport suspension. We didn't want an M Sport, and the Sport line doesn't offer the sport suspension either, so the greater color choices on the X Line made it an easy choice. We would have likely waited for an F31 if the N55 was available with it, but since they'll all be xLine with the N20, we decided to just grab the X1.
If you're focused on handling, the M Sport is good deal and very likely will handle better than an E9x without sport.
