Seems like BMW has to raise the front end in order to keep the 50/50 weight distribution.
As someone stated above, maybe the shipping blocks are still on, either on purpose or they forgot to remove them....not that that ever happens.

+1, that Fineline wood is great! I hope the F32 utilizes it ~Frost

The wheel gap on the Msport is surprising! it would seem that it's even more pronounced than on the other regular lines... no difference in height between all the lines, including Msport....

unless the Msport suspension is opted... which does not seem to be the case here...




as for the weight distri: am not sure what you want to say with the 50/50 with the front end raised... does not make sense to me...

3 series have always had such a PERFECT ride height. Why do they all look like xdrive models?

So sad.....

Love the M-Sport! It makes the car much more balanced in terms of looks, the front doesn't look to wide/thin. I just can't get myself to like the steering wheel though.

The M Sport is sooo nice! It'll be the M Sport 335 in Estroril + some goodies from BMW performance for me.

Because they prefer something other than the M-Sport?

m-sport cooling

Did anyone else notice the twin radiators in the brake ducting area? Does the m-sport now get the 335is and PPKv2 aux. water cooler as well? Nice bonus, if so.

From the looks of it (science may say otherwise), it looks like the m-sport is going to have excellent airflow and (hopefully) more than marginal cooling capacity as compared to the other F30 models and the E9x.

That's right, the M Sport will have increased cooling over the base, luxury, and modern line F30s.

Per our interview with the 3 series product manager, the Sport Line models will also have the extra cooler behind the passenger side fog lights for extra cooling benefits.

+1! These shots reaffirmed my decision to hold out for M Sport. It looks awesome.

M-Sport is looking really good.

Do we know if the 328i M-Sport will have the same kind of exhaust treatment as the 335i?

it was the US Press launch. One would think it would be US Spec. Plus it had the ugly front plate holder with a US style slot.
