I have a 3.0D MSport without VDC. When I have to choose I always prefer a slightly firm rude to a slightly soft one - this is purely my personal preference so bear this in mind re what I say.
I find the non-sport suspension a little too floaty at times and a little less controlled over bumps. Sport suspension is a fraction firmer though it's hard to notice but the suspension controls the wheels better in that it recovers from a bump in the road faster. Turning into roundabouts I find is a more satisfying experience, the non-sport I find is less connected to the road.
My previous car was a 335i MSport. This was way more connected to the road than the X3 but its ride was frankly unacceptable. The X3 sport suspension ride is nothing like my 335i.
