Just got a reply from BMW UK...

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I whizzed them an e-mail enquiring why the 328i was not available in Sport Line on the UK website and got a reply soon afterwards. They said:

"I can advise you that Sport is a budget specification trim, so is only offered in the smaller engined models. The BMW 328i and BMW 335i will be available as an M Sport when that trim launches a few months after the car does."

So there you go! The Sport Line is the "budget" spec. Luxury it is for me then as I probably can't hold on for the M Sport. That is if we get a 328i... But it is looking extremely likely!!

So the "Sport Line" is the only Line that will offer M Sport (see other posts) but is their budget model.

The info to date on all this is so ridiculous...

Here in the good ol' USA, the Sport Line doesn't require the Premium Package, but the Modern and Luxury Lines do, so I guess you could call it "budget" here in the US as well.

If you could call anything by BMW "budget". Ha!

Budget means a whole different thing in the UK. The prices there for BMW strippers translated to dollars is through the roof. That's another reason they sell more budget-y models such as the 320D.

Budget model? Does 335i count as a budget model? U can get either of the 3 design lines for 335i in Germany, or just the basic spec (i.e. same appearance as UK's SE spec).
It depends on what u want from the Sport model, if it's the interior scheme then u have no alternative. Exterior styling it've very similar to Modern Line apart from the rims & the fog lamp grill inserts. Dynamically there's no difference between the lines as they all come with standard suspension.
If all u want is just a good drive then just get the SE & spec it with adaptive M suspension & possibly variable sports steering as well, & retrofit the M aerodynamic kit later on. The only unique item so far that's specific to the M sport seems to be the steering wheel, but I found it looked ugly.
