E90 Leather Upholstery Question

Does 330 come with Premium Leather Seats (Standard)?

Sports Package? Is it another type of seats?

And what if you get both Premium & Sport package....what seats are those???

My concern is..if i just get the Sports Pkg...am I missing alot vs a Premium pkg?

Sorry for asking stupid questions, thx!

LOL nothing comes standard on e90's, you pay for it all kind of like an a la carte meal....LOL j/k

1.) Leather seats are not standard, you can order them separately or as part of the Premium package.
2.) If you get Sport package then you get the sport seats.
3.) Can't help you on it. You need to test drive a car with and one without SP. I'll tell you that you'll notice the difference in the lowered Sport suspension immedately and it looks better.

Good luck!

The e90 sports & premium package gets you the best seats in an e90. It's leather with the 8 way sports adjustable and lumbar support. They are great, the best seats I've had in any 3 series (including an E46 M3).

Goes without saying, but you can get most of that info off the website.

Gotta Git What You Want

You need to decide if spending the extra money for Leather is the way you want to go. The seats that come with the sports package are awesome, with or without leather. I ordered mine without the premium package or leather because those things seem like a waste to me. I am buying the car for the awesome looks and performance,......not the smell of leather or a compass in the rear view mirror(yes I know there are more things that come with the premium package).

But I will say it again. Get What You Want.

Leather in the E90 is a HUGE improvement over the leather in the E46.

I have gotten leatherette over the years and been real happy with it. Sports pack is a must for me; leather or premium a luxury that I can think of better things to spend the $ on (new windsurfer, mountain bike, trip to Chile, ...)

I think premium package is a must with the leather premium seats and BLUETOOTH of course (can't do without it!)

Everyone considers BMW a luxury car, I just can't imagine it without leather. I know many of you here like the leatherette but that's just my opinion

Premium is a no-brainer for me. I use every single component of that package. I love the leather - very good quality.
