I read my Owners Manual for my '08 R55 Clubman concerning the the sport mode and it said that it tightened up the steering and the throttle response. It does both of those things, but it doesn't mention any suspension changes.
My question is; if it has no effect on springs or shocks, why do they specify a different front shock for sport equipped models?

You also get a thicker anti roll bar, with sports packs
I'm sure the sports button has no effect there
