Facelift cars with perf pack DO have firmer dampers, it's not a seperate option. It part of the per pack. I think PPP refers to prefacelift cars..

You can get a face-lift E63 5.5 turbo for under 30k now...very quick cars and easily map to 650-700 if tuning is your thing

No, PPP covered both pre (2010 on) and facelift cars. The suspension was a cost option.

The 2008/9 performance package had the stiffer suspension.

Actually, having owned both the pre and facelift PPP saloons I can say that the facelift actually feels less crashy thanks to better geometry
