Shadow Sport Edition Design

Anyone here have any real-life pictures of an F30 with Shadow Sport Edition Design? It is somewhat surprising for me that BMW doesn't add this feature on top of the M-Sport Package... And it is more expensive than M-Sport package. hmmm.... Purely aesthetic package.

No. Regular taillights but my mirrors are black, black exhaust tips, headliner inside is black as well. I've since swapped my grilles from the chrome you see here to all black as well.

I don't think you have the Shadow Sport edition. The "tier" supposed to include: darker tail lights, black kidney, black inserts in LED headlights.

You're right. I have the Sport Line. I confused the two.

@drummerlauw Shadow Sport Edition is new to 2018. If you're looking at a 340, then the Shadow Sport is technically the same price as the M-Sport package (aesthetically). The reason it's 'more expensive' is because park distance control comes standard with Shadow Sport ($750 option). If you want shadow sport on a 330i, then it'll be priced much lower than the M-Sport package as the 330i M-Sport has additional features that come standard on 340 (such as moonroof). Anyways, here are a few pics of what it looks like -

Ahh got it. I think I was confused because on the online configuration, the Shadow Sport looks like non m-sport (without M front/ rear bumpers), even on the 340i model. Just trying to makes sense the higher price than M-Sport model. So all in all, the Shadow Sport Edition is a step above M-Sport (aesthetically).

Yeah, I really like the exterior of the shadow sport. I ordered one in mineral grey (340i) and should have it in about 3 weeks (ordered 11/16 and it was built at the Rosslyn plant). I wish shadow sport had the M steering wheel though.

I wouldn't say Shadow Sport is a step up above M-Sport. It depends if you want M sport bumpers/steering wheel or the shadow sport darker grill/headlights/tail lights etc

Here are a couple of pics of the m sport to see the bumpers (best I could find) -
