High-performance factory packages are a common sight these days, but BMW's ZMP M-Sport packages are more than just big wheels and fancy aero pieces. The details revealed today tell us what equipment is standard in the M-Sport package, which models will get it and how much it will cost.
Don't worry, though - big wheels and fancy aero are still part of the package. But on top of that M-Sport buyers will get a sport suspension, special M-branded interior elements, upgraded headliners and a range of special paint colors including two new options: Le Mans blue metallic and Carbon Black.
Other features in the packages include sport seats, a leather steering wheel, and Shadowline exterior trim. The 550i adds active roll stabilzation and multi-countour seats. The 128i gets 17in M wheels, the 3-series can choose from 17in or 18in alloys, the 550i gets only 19-inchers, and the X5 can choose between 19in and 20in wheels.
All 3-series cars except the 335d, the 128i, and the 550i will be able to equip the M-Sport package, in addition to the 135i and other 5-series cars that have already received the treatment. X5s built in April and later will also be able to get the M-Sport package, adding an unit as well.
Pricing starts from $2,450 for the 128i Coupe, then $3,250 for the E92 Coupe, up to $3,750 from the E90 Sedan, $4,800 for the 550i and onward to $6,500 for the X5 3.0 and 4.8 models.
