M Sport Package, black, Alpina !!!

A lot of people still don't like the M Sport Package. Again some pictures that show the beauty of it (IMO)!

i don't know, i don't dislike it, i just think that the difference between M-Sport vs. non-M-sport is so insignificant, that there is basically nothing to point out. i mean, am I wrong or is it just a slightly different front lip and the rear?

of course, the interior is visibly different, but that is also only thanks to the M steering wheel and M gear knob...

At first, I wasn't really impressed, but now over time, I have come to appreciate the subtle differences and after seeing a bunch of aftermarket kits, I really love it now!! It's difficult IMO to strike a balance between sporty with class and wanna-be race car. I think the M kit accomplishes that to a tee.

I would have agreed with you till I saw it in real life

You see the difference immediately, you cannot miss it

Pictures really dont do it justice

I think that's a general theme with the e90. It doesn't photograph well. Pictures don't capture the lines and creases. Not sure if it's BMW across the board, but with the e90, pictures never do it justice.

Well said, Danny. I want to see it in person before I decide but from all pictures I've seen so far I'd very much go for it when it becomes available in the US.

Mine? I haven't installed it yet still waiting for the m-cover to get here...

BTW, did you have a rubbing noise when you turned your old zsp wheel? I have that and I'm hoping that the new wheel will fix that.

Danny

I had no rubbing noise at all


I am just curious to see how this new shaped front plate really looks. I know ive seen a few pics of them, but they havent been the best resolution...

If it doesnt look all that great, I might buck up for the rounded wheel.

Looks really hard. Like the E90 went to the tattoo parlor and came back home w/ an ethnic tattoo. Nice

I find it difficult to understand how people cannot see the difference. Steering wheel, bucket seats, short shifter, skirting - decent looking wheels. Green eyed monster is lurking.............

see, these are all interior changes. but on the outside, there isn't much to it.

but maybe it's as E90fleet said, it just looks a lot better in person than on pictures...

You also get "sharper" side skirts that make such a difference when you see it in real life!
