6 Series GT M Sport Plus Ride Quality

I'm in the market for a 630d GT M Sport Plus. These come with 20 inch alloy wheels so I'm wondering how good the ride quality is on standard air suspension at the rear with springs at the front. I currently drive an F11 5 series touring with Variable Damper Control (VDC) so that's my comparison point. Can anyone help?

I've noticed most of the approved used models on sale have the M Sport Plus package so it seems to be very popular - so the standard 19 inch M Sport wheels probably won't attract many buyers.

This is the exact spec of my car.

I find the ride quality is very good to be honest, it's not at all crashy and feels very smooth even over poor surfaces.

If anything it's a little too soft sometimes in terms of body roll but that probably fits the GT style.

Overall I find it a very relaxing cruiser despite the M-Sport Plus pretensions. I came from an F10 on standard SE suspension for comparison.

Many thanks for your response.

You can only get so much from a brief test drive so it's good to hear from an owner with day to day experience.

Coming from a 2016 SRT Challenger and also a RAM 1500 owner, when I test drove the 2016 M6 my very first impression on the freeway at 70mph was how loud the road noise was. I also had a LS-460 and that was an extremely quiet car at any speed.

Now I own the M6 I test drove and when I put it "grandma mode" i.e. "efficient" the road noise isn't too bad and it's decently comfortable for day to day driving. The V8 bi-turbo fun starts at 3,500 rpm or so. Rocket ship.
