My new 325i M Sport Auto

Hi All,

Been lurking here for a while in anticipation of today!

I finally took delivery of my 325i M Sport Auto this morning.

Unfortunately, work has meant only a quick half hour spin round the block, but what a car!

The Sport version had only just been released when I ordered it, so could only test drive the 325i SE version, but I definitely think I've made the right choice.

The performance and handling are just fantastic, although I'm hoping to push it a bit harder later on on some quiet country roads and see how it really performs.

I've read some comments about the M Sport suspension giving a hard ride, but I can't say that it's any worse than any other car with 'sports' suspension that I've driven in the past. This could, in some part, be down to the incredibly comfortable sports seats.

I'm a pretty big guy (over 6'3 & I'm not telling you much I weigh!) and they are by far and a way the most comfortable I've ever sat in.

I think it's fair to say that I'm pretty much delighted with it!

Anyway, here's the photos!

IMO the 325i M-sport might be the best E90 configuration, given the low weight for excellent handling, and decent fuel economy (not in diesel land, but still excellent). Congrats on a wonderful car.

Excellent. Good to see so many UK drivers opting for the 325i over the 320d

If there is an option in Canada for M-aero, I would pick it up. It looks so so so good. Really love it, especially the seats and Bodykit, Steering wheel too....Oh I want to sell my car ...

Thats agreat looking car !

Yeah I was really tempted by the M Sport, when I ordered in Jan. ( I thought it had been available or several months) Its a great looking car, with a more agressive front grill, lovely door sills, with M badges every where. Yummy.
But I do differ in your opinion on the seats, I am typical middle aged, and felt the sports seats were a bit narrow, and hugging in the sides. Since I wanted leather, I didn't want such a 'snug' fit, despite all the seat adjustments. They couldn't offer me a M Sports qwithout the sports seats, and for the extra 1.8K I couldn't justify the extra costs. So I ended up with a 325 SE, plusSports suspension, which feels perfect for me. Very happy with.
I am seeing quite a few Sparkling Graphites E90 on the roads. perhaps we could have a SG Meet

IMO that M-sport is the best interior ever for a 3-series. Looks like it synchs nicely with the SG too.
