SP or $'s for mods?

Ok - I've never not planned on getting the sports package before, but the "Styling 96" wheels aren't really as exciting as I would like. I love the look of the 18" 740i sport wheels on Mike Allen's 2002 sedan. It got me to thinking about skipping the SP and putting more money into mods.

I will have to get winter wheels (not steel) and tires so could use the factory 16' with winter tires. Once I have the factory 17" I doubt I will talk myself into upgrading for summer. I probably would be changing the springs (even on the SP) to get a little lower already.

I know the SP seats and steering wheel are better, but just considering the suspension - what would it take to be equal or better than the SP. Would a cup kit and sway bars be enough? Is the steering any different on SP?
