Adaptive M suspension better for driving on potholed roads?

Hi guys,

Im in the market to buy a G20 and came across two 330xi that I like. One has the M sport suspension and the other one the adaptive M suspension.

Since I live in an area where there are lots of pot holes, which one will have a smoother and confortable ride in this case?

Thanks

Alrighty thanks alot!

Since its a crazy warzone where I live with so many potholes that its the main reason for switching my 2 series to the 3 series. I didnt wanna go with an suv and wanted to see if I can put in 17inch wheels on my potential 330xi.

Im planning on putting 215 55 17 as winter tires and probably next spring buy a summer set in that size as well. Will it fit these tires on my 330xi? I have the M sport package with blue calipers.
