From justinnum's sig:

"F30 335i Msport Estoril Blue/Black leather..."

That package I think is the best looking of the current F30 lineup.

But for me, I would pick something other than the aluminium diamond trim or whatever it's called inside.

Here in Canada, there's no Msport for the 328i models (regular or xDrive), and I'm okay with that - I think that the Msport should be reserved for the top engine.

One of the guys that works at the my dealership was getting the 335i Msport in Estoril Blue as well. I think it'll be an iconic choice within the F30 lineup, and should hold its value well.

It should come with the PPK standard as well.

Personal preference and opinion.... But I honestly feel the msport looks like a different car vs. the other lines. Don't think I would have personally picked up the f30 had the m sport not come out. Could I buy an M3... Yes. But I want an everyday driver that is skewed to sporty without being a pure bred track car (which I feel the msport w all the goodies is). Sticker price for my car was $75k... So for all of those who make the assumption that an msport is a "poser car", relative to how I equipped my car... The price difference for an m3 isn't all that far off.

+ I have yet to see another msport on the road to date.

Craziness... The day I post this, I see my first m-sport on the road (in white). It looked sharp for the 4 seconds I had to see it zip by.

I work and drive through mid-city Los Angeles daily..the land of BMW's...not too far from Beverly Hills BMW and I have yet to see an M-Sport F30 although there are plenty M-Sport F10s.

I think the sport line looks very nice. I kept going between sport and Msport and finally decided on Msport due to the front end style, wheels, and M steering wheel.
I like the look of the front end lighting with fog lights, but I don't any actual need for them.

I don't think the Msport looks like a fake M at all, and I'm not just saying that because I have one.
The actual M has a distinct look all it's own.
Those who would know will know an actual M from an Msport, and those who don't could care less in the first place.
So no one is being faked or fooled.
Msport is simply a cosmetic pkg for those who want their 3 to look different from other 3's.

I do like the M sport bumper but for me personally I got the Sportline because of the interior. I love the red stripe I can get with the black gloss and black leather with red stitching. But it all comes down to personal preference like many have already said. Either way great looking cars.

I've seen one MSport and had to give him a thumbs up for the EB color! Have seen a handful of Sport lines and ever fewer Modern/Luxury. All are far outnumbered by base line.

The number of M Sports is clearly skewed by the "enthusiast" nature of the forums. I've never seen an F30 M Sport on the road (all 328s - a handful of sport lines and all the rest have been base, luxury, and even a couple modern lines). When I took mine in to the dealer ( I didn't buy from them) for service, they were excited because it was the first M Sport F30 they had seen in person and only the second F30 335i to go through there.

This is not the case for Canadian purchasers. The 335i M Sport option here offers the potential to add M Sport Adaptive suspension (not available with other lines), M Sport brakes (with Brembo callipers front and rear and larger rotors), and staggered 18" summer performance tires on M Sport alloys (only all seasons available with lines) in addition to the upgraded styling features.

So for some fortunate Canadian F30-335i buyers,
M Sport = upgraded suspension +upgraded brakes + upgraded traction + upgraded aesthetics. Not a bad package !!!

Have to disagree with this one...

The M Sport line gives you all of the features of the Sport line, including sports suspension and seats, PLUS a host of cosmetics.

^ You do get sport seats with the Sportline. Do you get sport suspension with the Sportline though?

Yes, in the United States you do - not much of a sport line w/o sport suspension. Apparently other markets only get that on the M-sport though. Bummer for them.

I don't dislike the M sport but I really like my sport line. I prefer the tighter overhangs and the understated touches. Also the sport line wheels are my favorite BMW wheel in history. no regrets! Mine's a looker!

The xdrive of any line does not get the sport suspention. You have to order the dynamic handling package.

I am not sure if the m sport xdrive comes with DHP standard or not

I've seen two M Sports on the road, both Alpine white. I saw a silver Active Hybrid 3 on the freeway last week!

Have not seen an F30 here in northern NJ since I got mine in August. That will change in the next few months I'm sure.

Wrong on M-sport 335xi.
It comes with msport suspension. Just not lowered as in 335i.
As part of DHP, the msport suspension becomes "adaptive".
That's how mine is.

I thought NO xdrive model, including the 335xi, came with sports suspension? And that ordering DHP was the only way to get a sports suspension of any kind on an xdrive?? And that the BMWUSA website is confusing regarding this issue.
