The M on the M Performance Gear Selector doesn't light up only the gear letters are.

You're welcome. Kind of wished they did light up, would've looked better.

Thanks. The exhaust definitely gives it more of a persona.

It's coming along.

How come you didn't just buy an M Sport in the first place?

Are you going to change the seats to sports seats?

Intially, didn't want to spend too much for the M-Sport, Since joining the forum I was tempted by the M-Sport.

I will swap out the seats for M Performance Seats in the future; Not sure if compatible with F30. Might look odd, the front seats in black alcantara and back seats in Oyster leather.

I agree, the exhaust note made a lot of difference. In stock, the car engine was almost inaudible. Since changing the exhaust the car feels more alive. The exhaust note can also set off nearby car alarms

Yep a lot more work and time spent, It would definitely be cheaper to trade it in for a new M Sport. I was halfway converted by the time I realised.

im not sure about the beige steering and dash, i guess it comes with the modern line. but everything else is spot on, black goes very well with those rims.

yeah i have no idea what BMW was thinking when they made a Beige steering, maybe you should try the M performance steering?. and where did u get all the M performance stuff, from the dealers? I'm in sydney waiting on my 435i one more month to go, then few more months before we see any M performance accessories for 4 series in Aus (dealers have no clue).
