As the full German F30 catalogue has been published, we can now share more details of the much-anticipated F30 M Sport Package.

First off, the M Sport Package is supposed to be available from July 2012 on (worldwide). That's in line with our previous estimate as production of the model year 2012 F30 will end in June 2012 and model year 2013 beginning in July 2012.

UPDATE on the US M Sport package:
  • Production of M Sport Package F30 starts in July 2012 with deliveries expected to start in September 2012
  • US M Sport pack has no fog lights for enhanced cooling
  • Contrary to some rumors in the media, there'll be no power bump with the M Sport package
  • M Sport Aero kit has no aerodynamic advantage over the other lines.


EXTERIOR:

The M Sport Package comprises of unique front bumpers with enlarged bumper intakes, more sculpted rocker panels, and a unique rear bumper with a rear diffusor in dark shadow metallic. It also features shadow line door trim and the same front grilles as the Sport line (8 high-gloss slats). For European markets, the M Sport pack is also mated to the M Sport suspension with the adaptive suspension being optional. It remains to be seen however, if the US will get the adaptive suspension as a standard part of the package.

These exterior colors are available for the M Sport Package:
  • Estoril Blue II Metallic (exclusive to M Sport)
  • Black Sapphire Metallic
  • Melbourne Red Metallic
  • Glacier Silver Metallic
  • Mineral Grey Metallic
  • Alpine White

M Sport comes with a choice of two wheels - the 400M 18" split spoke wheels come standard and the 403M 19" bicolor wheel are optional. Both wheels run 225 tires front and 255 tires rear.

INTERIOR

On to the interior, the M Sport package comes with a lovely M Sport steering wheel, a new M Sport footrest, and a short shifter if you stay with the good old manual transmission. BMW decided to retain the Sports line gauges for the M Sport Package, so there'll also be red accents in the gauge cluster. The key fob features a blue accent trim. There will be four different interior trims available - an aluminum hexagon trim with either matte estoril blue or black accent stripes, a fine aluminum trim with black accents, and a walnut wood trim with chrome accents.

Seats will be available in:
  • Black Leatherette (NA only)
  • Veneto Beige Leatherette (NA only)
  • Dakota Leather Black
  • Dakota Leather Veneto Beige
  • Dakota Leather Coral Red with Black accent stitching (same as Sports line)
  • Cloth/alcantara seats (not available for the US)


BRAKES:

In the US, M Sport Brakes are a not available as part of the M Sport Package or as a standalone option (US members can opt for the M Performance Brakes, which are the same as M Sport brakes, except for color).

In Germany, M Sport Brakes are option and the option requires either M Sport Package or a 335i with at least 18" wheels.

The M Sport Brakes feature bigger rotor sizes and fixed piston calipers both front and rear. They are Brembo 4-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the front axle and 2-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the rear axle. The brake calipers are painted in dark blue and an M logo is applied (think of the F10 M5 caliper design here) (see the first photos below from a previous spy photo) . You may not want to miss out on the M Sport brakes, as BMW will be offering as a BMW Performance part, huge 370mm drilled/slotted brake discs for the M Sport brakes (see below).

For those looking forward to the F30 M Sport, I hope this helps you in planning for options and color combinations. Stay tuned for a lot more information on the all-new F30 3 series in January and check our ongoing coverage in the meantime: http://www.bimmerpost.com/3-series/f30/

Good to see that you don't have to get the blue stripe.

The availability of wood trim might have just sold me. I was leaning away from M-Sport, but now I might reconsider!

Would have liked to see black leather with blue stitching or something along those lines. I guess it's still possible since we don't get the alcantara option here.

Hey South,

So if you choose black seats they dont come with blue stitching? thats odd since the sport line comes w variable color stitching, dont u think?

I think in the current issue of Automobile mag, they indicate the M-sport will come with 335 hp. Any truth to this rumor?

M-Sport does not seem to be a very big upgrade over sport.

southlight - These are slotted/drilled rotors, not calipers.

Reviewing M-Sport's options and choices offered, this is the way to go. It's everything we come to expect from BMW.

be careful if you get the lighter shades of accent stitching... I had light silver against black dakota and it got dirty pretty quick.

I used to like the 19" wheels. But not happy about the fact they come in bicolor. The bicolor look so flat, definitely prefer the single-color version.

bicolor





single-color

still a shame the interior trim is still missing the carbon look which was available on the e46. Looks like vinyl will be on order if I ever order the f30

Is the m sport lower then the regular sport 335 or 335 non sport? And if so by how much? I'm worried about ground clearance with my steep driveway.

Sports suspension and adaptive sports suspension are 10mm or 0.4in lower than the regular suspension.


Best regards,
