Trouble identifying suspension.!!?

My rear shocks need replacing. Looking to purchase a set of Sachs, as i read they were as close to OEM with a good price.

Car: 01' 330ci 05/01

Problem: They have a sport suspension and non-sport, not sure which to buy.

Q1: Does sport mean for only M cars or all with the sport package?
Q2: My car has the sport steering wheel, seats, and rims with the M logo, does this mean i have the sport suspension? I've read they could have been ordered separate, or even added on later.
Q3: I've also read that all coupes come with a sport suspension, is this true?

Note: I've already tried bmwvin.com and it doesn't state "sport package" anywhere.

He has a 330ci which includes sport suspension. Sport package is nothing to do with suspension. If you want a real sport suspension you have to build your own! BMW gets another

BMW gets a thumbs down for including an upgraded sport suspension by default on US market coupes?
