I mean if it's appearance, great, because the car looks fantastic.
The "M" Sport Package adds some appearance items to the regular Sport Package. iIRC, seats and suspension remain the same in both Sport versions. And neither one affects the NA 3.0 I-6 motor which develops 230, not 240 hp. (It was avilable on the 5 series for one or two years with 240 hp, but only with the 8 speed Steptronic.)

Thx for clearing that up. No disrespect intended to the OP since it's a fine looking car and I wish my 35d was an E91 instead of an E90.
