Yea comparing to the regular sport model I think I would prefer the interior of the non-m sport to the m-sport, still not crazy about the colored accents in the leather seats or door/dash trim.

If those color accents match the exterior color I wonder what they will do for black and white exterior cars?

Comments like "I can't tell the difference between this and an E90 LCI" make me laugh. Really? I mean, there are similarities, but come on?!?!?

Looks better than the non m sport 3 but still a fail IMO.

Grills are fugly as is the steering wheel. It just looks tiny whether it's retro or not.

Looks much more aggressive and sportier with the M-Kit.

thanks! Until we figure out why the headlights need that extra rectangular box next to the grills a custom cover or piece there will make it look alot more subtle and refined..

I don t understand those who speak about the not proper quality interior
This is just one interior version, but you also can choose full leather and of course another trim! Nobody stayed in it yet but negative comments all over...

Gotta love Estoril, as for the M Wheel, it's old school, brings me back to my E30's and E34's.
A bit refreshing imo!

Wow, i can see a single thing about the car i like; it's ugly, the interior looks like crap and i think BMW design in general is all down hill after Chris Bangle.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

I agree!
hopefully the Msports come with leather as an option. I personally hate the accent stitching.. it looks cheesy imo

I like the steering wheel, not sure how I feel about the body-colored trim on the inside though. I love the exterior though!

Guys, this isn't ACTUALLY Estoril Blue, its Estoril Blue II! The real Estoril Blue from way back was a lead-based paint, meaning it's a no-go for modern applications. The new one is a slightly different color.

Looks great but I don't like the wheel. In a Z4 that steering wheel style fits but here it looks out of place to me.
