So I ended up testing couple 740Li and 750Li, with and without the Msport package, and they felt very wobbly at medium to high speeds when changing directions rapidly from side to side. I expect the ARS would mitigate some of this body roll, but would like some comments from people who tested both the ARS and non-ARS versions.

2. The rear-entertainment system - can it play regular DVDs through the front changer - does it matter the format (european/US) ?

Thanks a lot
You can play regular DVDs from the front changer. You end up with three physical DVD players. Two in the front and one in the back (unless they changed it)

Also, I was told the 2013 RE has a rear idrive controller. My 2011 only has a remote.
