E90 M Sport Rare Sight?

Hi,

I'm awaiting delivery of an E90 335d M Sport. I keep looking around in car parks and on roads and I don't seem to be seeing many of them around. Maybe 5 or 6 in about 3 weeks. OK so maybe that isn't RARE as such but compared to say E46 convertibles, M3s, X5s, 5 series sport etc. of which I've seen loads they do seem to be a rare sight. I'm quite pleased about that as I like to have a car that's a bit different if poss.

Do you agree? Or do you see loads around?

Cheers

Paul

Haven't seen many 335i E90/1/2/3 at all.

Probably seen 2 335i/d in about 1 month!!!

Should see another in a few days.....MINE

Congrats! Don't forget to post pics.

I meant M Sport E90 generally, not just 335i/d if anyone else has comments.

I don't think I've seen another E90 335d M Sport where we live.

Plenty of other M Sports mostly 320ds, seems to be apopular model.

Ive had my E90 335i M Sport for 11 weeks now... and I havn't seen ANY 335i or d E90's.....

The only one Ive ever seen was when I was driving to the dealership to originally test drive a 325i... (fate?)

Ive seen about 4 or 5 E92's, of which only one was a 335 (de-badged) and yesterday I saw my first E93 and it was a 335i.

M Sports in general are not as common as I though they were, I see much more SE's than M Sports.... proberly 6 SE's to every 1 MS...

Apart from mine...I see very few E90 M Sports and have yet to see an E90 335i or 335d...keep looking out for them! The E90 M Sports I tend to see are 320d's and they have slightly different alloys to my 330d.
The 320d Sports have 17" compared to the 18"s on the 330d.
Seen one 335d touring and a 335i coupe that is it.

Did see a 320d E92 coupe on Sunday it was a grey one with the M Sport pack...but those 18" M Sport alloys looked a bit "lost" ! Just didn't seem big enough for those arches!
The car looked good though!

Do you agree? Or do you see loads around?

I see an e90 msport every single day :rocks:

I agree though - they are not that common - and I actually think this is a good thing.

Over time I think this will change for instance in the end MOST e46 coupes seemed to be msports.

By the way I will be taking my 330i msport through Buckinghamshire tomorrow, so you may see one then.

Which bit of bucks, I'll look out!

I suppose it is tough to compare to E46 as there wasn't an M Sport 4 door as far as I know? Even the new E90 SE I don't seem to see too many of.

I agree i tis a good thing, leaves people guessing as to what it is.

There was an e46 msport 4 door. They have the larger wheels and bodykit including a little boot spoiler.

I'll be coming on the B-roads from Banbury to Syresham (great road - followed a grey ferrari last time) and on up the A43.

Blimey, I didn't think there was. Will have to keep an eye out. Equally rare !
