E60 Non/M-Sport suspension and 520d/530d vs ride comfort

I am considering getting an E60 diesel for my longer commute, as these are economical and really cheap these days with lots of various trims and specs offered.
One of the key factors for me is the ride comfort.
Common sense dictates that M-Sport suspension would be harsher than Non-M-Sport, and 530d harsher than 520d due to the higher weight.

Are the differences substantial, or noticeable enough to include them into consideration?

I don't find the sport suspension on an e60 harsh or that firm at all. It still glides compared to an e46 sport.

(My dad has an e60 525d sport)
