What packages/add ons comes with M Sport?

I heard that the 2016 435i M Sport comes with the lighting package (LED Headlights) but when I Received my vehicle it was a m sport but with regular HID xenon lights. my friend has a 2016 428i m sport and hers came automatically with LED lights Is it true that m sport vehicles for that year. Is it true that m sport F3X vehicles come with the lighting package for that year and if so with my vehicle being 1 trim higher to 435i why wouldn't mine come with it?

This is a difficult question. Different world regions had different configuration packages. these packages also varied from year to year. I doubt anyone is keeping track, especially back to 2016...

But since yours doesn't have LED, I guess it's safe to assume it was not part of the M Sport package that year, for your region.

Why does it matter, at the end of the day?

Also, on the F30 with base halogens, there were two levels of upgraded lighting, which were HID xenon or full LED. On the F32, it came with HID xenon as standard, so that could be confused as the "lighting package". But as far as I'm aware, the F32/33/36 did not come with the Lighting Package as standard - at least in the states.

Thanks man. Very much appreciated! That makes perfect sense.

We are both in the states in florida but QuikSilver_ answered it very well. I appreciate your answer as well.

This isnt correct.
For USDM-
Pre LCI F30- Base Headlights= Halogen, Upgraded= HID
Pre LCI F32- Base Headlights = HID, Upgraded= LED

LCI F30- Base Headlights= Halogen (320i only afaik), Mid Tier=LED Top Tier=Adaptive LED
LCI F32- Base Headlights=LED, Upgraded= Adaptive LED


To answer OP's question M-Sport wasnt ever connected with the lighting package on F32 (in the US). It was always a separate package. LCI (2018+) it was included in executive package I believe.

And apparently (so I recently learned), the LCI F32 base LEDs are projectors, rather than the reflectors the rest of us have.

You have to hunt for them, but it IS possible to find a 330i with halogens. Not sure about the 340i.

That car is a particularly confusing set of options, modestly well appointed otherwise but with bottom of the barrel lights.

To the OP, honestly in these cars LED and HID are pretty much the same in terms of performance. Unless they are adaptive LEDs, or in projectors, the HID setup actually has a better beam pattern.

Wow! Who configured that? Looks like a random checking of boxes, literally!

Not sure about the F36, but here is the US order guide for the 2016 F30. Fun seeing all the options I wish I had.

Yeah id say the only real reason to pine for the Adaptive LEDs on pre-lci f32 is that you can code in NGHB (and I think the LEDs look better..especially the halos but thats a personal preference)... which is a pretty neat feature. Otherwise the HIDs have good pattern and coverage.
