SE Sports seat upgrade

Hey all,

I'm speccing out my first BMW, trying to choose between a 320d M-Sport with bells and whistles or a 330D SE with just the bells. My question today is, the brochure has an upgrade option to Sport seats (410 in the UK)

code 481 - Sport Seats Front

I was wondering whether this upgrade is to the same seats that you get in the 320 Sport spec line. If so, those seats are very nice.

Beyond cosmetics then, I think that the SE 330D with the sport seat upgrade is pretty much the same as the M-Sport? Is that correct? Obviously no M-Sport suspension, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Hi,

Firstly you should definitely get the 330d

Yes, the Sports Seats are the same as you get with the Sport and M Sport lines; they're excellent seats and definitely worth choosing if they don't come with the line you choose.

There's more to the M Sport than the seats and suspension though: the main thing is that the exterior of the car is much nicer with the M Sport body kit; and you also you get a choice of (subjectively) nicer wheels, Individual Anthracite Headliner, Individual High Gloss Shadowline (black) window and mirror trim. And, you get the awesome M Sport steering wheel!!

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I guess the next question is: 330SE with sport seats and adaptive suspension upgrades, or the M-Sport with standard suspension.

Or the 320D M-sport with speakers, suspension, seats.

Bloomin difficult choice this!

It's really difficult choosing the options, I changed mine 3 times after I'd ordered before it went into production!

Only you can decide what you want and need really; the Adaptive suspension is fantastic as it really transforms the car compared with either the M Sport passive suspension (in both directions: comfort and sport) or the standard suspension; the sports seats are also pretty crucial IMO; personally I'd recommend getting both of those with any F30. Speakers you can probably live without if you have to make the choice.

If you get the SE I would definitely get the adaptive suspension and sports seats. Given just the choice of the two you've given above, I'd go 330SE with sports seats and adaptive suspension (I'd recommend the adaptive even with the M Sport anyway). The rest of the M Sport additions that you're missing out on are pretty much cosmetic, and you've got the much nicer engine in the 330D
