I'll add to the rumors. If I recall, when the E9x M3 came out and all the car magazines (C&D, R&T, etc) were testing them at tracks with BMW pro drivers, the pros told the writers that they preferred "normal" vs "sport" because of what's been mentioned about the potential firmness of "normal".
Truth? I'm not sure.
