I believe it's the one that is adjustable 0.75"-2" fronts and 1.75" rear. Group N spec only if you live in Germany or Japan and have smooth enough roads! Unless you like skipping over mid-turn bumps on your favorite country road, don't go to the Group N spec. It just doesn't make sense unless this is a track car.

The only reason I say that is this weekend I almost killed my M driving moderately on a damp country road that I know. The car hit a midturn bump at a mediocre speed (50) and the tail just whipped out, even though I only had barely enough gas on to sustain the speed (not accelerating). Boy oh boy was God smiling at me, because somehow that car just got itself back into the proper posture. If the car was lower and stiffer, I'm not sure it would've recovered.
