honestly I like everything except the stripes. The steering wheels is amazing IMHO. I like the interior trim as well. It gives the car a more aggressive look inside the cabin. When your driving and you have these accessories in your car, it makes you feel like the car is more refined and gives you a sporty aggressive feel. I personally dont like the wheels but different strokes for different folks! But happy to see that BMW is catering to certain peoples needs and people that cant afford a real M car but would love to have one. Now if someone was to put an M badge on the back of a 328i then I would LMAO lol. This performance stuff though is pretty cool for people that arent furtunate enough to purchase an M car.

wow, that f30 is ALMOST perfect!
Really hate the "m performance decals" would've been more appropriate if they left it at "BMW performance" but still too much badge flashing. I'm a litle unsure with the wheels.

The all black grill made the front end look much better mainly because the headlight-grill connection/contact is not obvious anymore. For some reason, the splitters worked much better on the F30 than it did on the e9X. Side skirt = very nice. I LOVE the wheel. (I, personally, do not like the M-sport steering wheel for the f30...this is the perfect replacement).

So, F30 M sport it is next year on my B-day! (wishful thinking but it might happen lol). I really like the stuff BMW/M Performance make

BTW, is there a rear end picture of the F30? would like to see if the rear is as sexy as the BMW perf on the e90.

Did nobody notice the interior pic of the 1er has an idrive screen, but no controller. And it has the BMW professional head unit..... Wayy mismatched for a press release.

Agree. The huge M performance written on the dashboard is beyond tacky. I'm sorry, but if you have a 328 or 335 and you spend thousands of dollars putting logos on it you are silly. Even if it just said performance on it it would be stupid. A dashboard does not make your car perform better. You like the material, fine, but loose the logo.

BMW is just doing wht they originally did. Back in 1979, there was a car called M535i......
I also remember, as a child, seeing many "M323i"s on the roads. Now, that was in the days of the E21 & way before anything called M635CSi or M5 was on sale.
The original brief for the M-car was sth that performs like a sports car but with the look & practicality of a standard family car. A lot of the extra bits such as steering wheel, suspension etc. were available in the accessories catalogue, now they're just marketing them separately.

Jesus Christ, what is happening to BMW lately? The wheels are terrible, they don't even fill the wheel arches properly, especially at the back. The stance (if there is one) is a disaster. Not to mention the tacky side logos on the skirts.

Are these factory installed parts or dealer add ons? More specifically the exhaust.

Thanks,

Thank you. I wish my M3 only had three badges: one on the engine, one in the gauges, and one in the trunk. These M and non-M cars are becoming ridiculous. The F30 is amazing (I've driven a 328i luxury) but BMW is making weird decisions, like making options exclusive to lines. I think lines should be available, but if I want a brown leather, 3D wood trim, and paddle shifters I could be able to order that (you currently cannot). If I ORDER a car and wait to pick it up, I should be able to pick every option I want.

There already is a performance package in the form of the power kit, available for both the N54 and N55. They've been out for many, many months.

Right, I forgot to mention in my previous post that the E12 also had a 'M535' in 1979. I also noticed growing up in Europe that a large number of Bmw's were debadged and had ///M logos on the trunklids and side moldings.... I dont know why everyone is making such a big deal about it now
Bmw Motorsport is a powerful brand name, and Bmw is just taking advantage of that fact by offering every Bmw owner the possibility of having ///M products on their cars...Theyve been doing it for over 30 years.

Will the exhaust system and performance kit be available for the 328i or is it only for 335i? The 328i needs a better exhaust system to sound better.
