Sport package on Xdrive a must???

Found e90 that I like, great price. Seller motivated to sell, mAintenance always done at dealership.

Has all the options (xenon, satellite, premium pack, etc.) but no sport package.

I've done my research and know only difference is rims and seats.

What do you think?

Sport package for xdrive models changes the rims (tho depending on model not as aggressive rims), sport seats and sport steering wheel.

Basically everything except the sports suspension.

Oil cooler is not really a big deal unless you plan on tracking the car or you drive like the four horseman of the apocalypse are on your ass. The E92 comes with the sports steering wheel standard. You can also have sports seats and shadow line trim (another sports package option) without the sports package.

You also get all the aesthetic changes that come with the package. IMHO the seats alone are worth the premium. Non-sport seats are teh suk!

you also get shadowline trim. its the biggest rip off from bmw for us AWD guys. i would have loved a 10mm lower suspension as well. all because people need the clearance to put chains on..

Not accurate. I have a 2011 335i M-Sport xDrive Coupe and no Oil Cooler. I even have the 18in wheel and summer tire package. Search some of my threads - BMW did not install Oil Coolers on all xDrives even if they are M-Sport.

Oh, well then my mistake, that is very weird tho, i know on 2007 models BMW didnt install it on all 335i, but thats very odd, did you have it retrofitted?

Yeah, I had at least 20 calls with BMW NA about this. They won't retrofit it either - BMW NA and two local dealerships said they don't make an Oil Cooler retro fit for 2011 (and other years) so I am SOL.

That being said, it should have come with an oil cooler. My understanding is all xDrive M-Sport Coupes which also had the S840 High Speed and 18in Wheels w/ Summer Tire upgrades should have had the oil cooler. But in April of 2011 it appears they had two "Sport Packages" in their system and they were phasing out the old Sport Package. From what I researched (and someone on the forums actually sued BMW about this issue but lost) was there was a glitch in their system and it wouldn't allow you to order the new M-Sport Package and the S840 High Speed package - thus unable to get the Oil Cooler. BMW then fixed the issue under and brushed it under the covers.

BMW only admitted to me that "Oil Coolers were not available for M-Sport xDrive Vehicles for my month". Blah blah - I was so angry.

Worse of all I had an oil cooler on my 2007 !!!

yea i would be furious, all sport packaged car should have oil coolers let alone M-sport ones, in fact ALL turbo cars should have oil coolers to keep the temperature down and prolong engine life, and yet bmw recommended 15k miles between oil changes, sounds like a disaster to me... One thing i hate about BMWs is hoe cheap they are, like the Brand itself, i had a 42k 328xi e92 that had manual seats and leatherette, my 2004 honda accord with was a 20k car had power and leather seats, and then all the cheap plastics and rubber trim on BMWs that peels and cracks in a few years... the only reason i come back is the drive is amazing BMW and Honda should build cars together where BMW engineers and designs and Honda choses the materials and actually builds it :0 it'll last forever haha

I have 2009 E90 with shadowline trim but not the sports pkg... I haven't driven one with sports pkg so I can't speak to it, but after almost owning it for 2 years, I'm still happy as a lark

IMO the sport seats and M steering wheel are the best part of my car.
