I don't think so. They will be better than the current seats, not worse.

Because the unfortunate reality is that 99% of bmw drivers have no interest in that at all. The brand has become more appealing to people who want the badge as a status symbol, not to actually utilize what the cars capable of - case in point when they released the reasoning behind why they lightened the feel of the steering years ago because "too many younger women complained it was too heavy" ...

I would hope that prospective M car owners would be a bit more discerning and would think that at least 80% would know a decent seat when they see one. If you are taking about MSport owners, then yes, a good number are likely a bit more into cosmetic, rather than dynamic enhancements. Here in the UK, you can delete the MSport passive suspension in favour of the SE/Modern standard suspension.

Of interest also, is that police BMWs are SE/Modern spec, but with MSport suspension, which is something the general public can't specify.

These are the seats in the X2 M35i.

I think the ones in the M3 will be fine.

Well If you drive G20 msport, you would see they don’t care about anyone who complains about heavy steering or stiff suspension. BMW is more of an enthusiast brand that it’s ever been.

Oh good, well now my DD is an f80 now so haven't had the chance to test a g20 yet but heard conflicting reviews so seems it's individual dependent I guess. Either way we can all agree nuthin is like the e90 gen steering which was epic

But as someone whose had a 3 series of every single generation since the e30 I couldn't disagree w ur last sentence more ...
