Default A4 SPORT SUSPENSION/NEW PURCHASE CONSIDERATION

Hi everyone,
I am contemplating the purchase of an '06 A4Q 2.0T. I am attempting an '06 purchase to gain the last year of the Audi Advantage/Maintenance Program and the year-end leasing offer. The downside is limited dealership stock. I desire an A4 with sport suspension and in my area, I have only been able to locate one vehicle with this option. Can someone tell me what exactly is found in this factory option. Is it different springs...shocks...sway bar diameters...etc. Can a non-sport supension A4 be upfitted to factory sport supension specifications or would this be senseless. I have noticed the sport supension vehicle uses a ContiProSportContact tires and this same sport suspended A4 that I'm looking at has the 10-spoke 17" wheels. Are the 17" 10 spoke rim dimensions different between a standard and a sport suspended A4? I have had the opportunity to test drive a normally supended A4Q 2.0T 6 spd manual. It appears to have firm, but also somewhat compliant/soft handling tendencies.
Use of my vehicle would be 70%city/metro area and 30% expressway. Is the sport supension objectionable/harsh (i.e bone-jarring) Firm is good - dash rattles and crash-through is not.
Your comments and suggestions please....
