Even the Msport doesn't distinguish itself from the sport line in any meaningful way.
In the least the Msport would have more "special" if BMW added the dynamic handling VSS and adaptive suspension and just increased the Msport price by about $500-$700. Yes, you can still get those things in other 3's, but it it's already included, that still makes for a more special package.
Heck even a LSD for the Msport would have made it "special".
+1 totally agree - hopefully an ///M performance line will fill that niche, but i'm sure it won't come cheap...
