Seen here, at the Brussels auto show (courtesy of member Howowcanigo), is the first sight of the F30 3 series M Sport looking great with the optional Style 403M 19" wheels and the blue M sport brakes that we've been mentioning. As we just posted about, it hasn't yet been decided whether the blue M Sport brakes will be a part of the M Sport Package or optional.

Also being displayed are some BMW Performance and M Performance - an M Performance alcantara dashboard cover with carbon fiber fabric trim, a performance flat bottom alcantara steering wheel with red center marker, and performance racing pedals. Some F30 exterior BMW M Performance and Performance parts were spotted for the first time just yesterday (see photos).

UPDATED PHOTOS BELOW:

These photos give us the first clear look at the M Sport brake. Calipers are painted in dark blue and show the M Decal. Also first seen in these photos is the short shifter for the manual transmission which seems to be the same as in or similar to the 1M short shifter. Finally, there are no red accents in the gauges of this car, so it remains to be seen if the European version will forgo them for production (as already seen for the US M Sport F30).

For all current F30 M Sport information, check our guide.

Steering wheel and wheels looks good. The dash trim, not so hot. And something like that should probably only be on M-cars, IMO.

The alcantara dash and steering wheel that you see do not come with the F30 M Sport package. They're optional BMW Performance and M Performance parts.

But the standard M Sport interior is still really nice

Not really, that already happened long ago when trucks got emblems for the trunk. Now its just a design house, so rather than having ACS or the like be enriched, BMW offers it themselves. Smart marketing for sure, but has no impact on the m brand, whatever that means.

Interesting that the performance steering wheel is a variant of the regular steering wheel, and not the the one that comes with the msport package..

I love the wheels and the alcantara interior pieces. The flat bottom steering wheel is SO aggressive...I like all. I'll TAKE IT!

You can peek them in the first photo - behind the front wheel.

But here's what they'll look like

Too much lower body cladding going on. I'm feeling they should just add skirts and have done with it already...
