We bring you live photos of the new 2012 BMW 3 Series with the aggressive-looking M Sport package.
The sporty package brings wheel upgrades to the “standard” 3 Series, in 18-inch or 19-inch as an option. Included in the M Sport pack is also an M-tuned suspension. The M Sport suspension lowers the car by ten millimeters and offers stiffer spring and damper settings as well as harder stabilizers.
In the visual department, the BMW Individual High-gloss Shadowline trim give the car that typical M look. An optional M paint is also offered – Estoril Blue, as well as M Sport brakes with contrasting blue paint finish.
Special aerodynamics cues, front and rear bumpers, sill covers in body color and a striking diffuser insert in Dark Shadow Metallic on the tail and chromium exhaust pipe finishers underline the sporting character of the M Sport package.
Inside, the M theme continues with sports seats boasting distinctive cloth/Alcantara upholstery, trim elements with blue accent strips, an M Shortshifter (in models with manual gearbox), M door sill finishers, an M driver’s footrest and the new M leather steering wheel. In addition, there are three further leather finishes. The decorative surface is designed in Aluminum Hexagon with blue accent trim strip.
BMW will offer the M Sport package at launch time which for US customers means February 2012.
