The stunning new F30 3 series M Sport Package made an appearance at the Detroit Auto Show in a sparkling Estoril blue exterior paint. The package adds 18-inch or 19-inch lightweight wheels as an option. Included in the M Sport pack is an M-tuned suspension which lowers the car by ten millimeters and offers stiffer spring rates and damper settings as well as stronger stabilizer bars. BMW says the decision to include M Sport brakes as standard has yet to be determined.

Special aerodynamics cues, front and rear bumpers, sill covers in body color and a striking diffuser insert in Dark Shadow Metallic on the tail, and chromium exhaust pipe finishers underline the sporting character of the M Sport package.

For the interior, there are sports seats boasting distinctive cloth/Alcantara upholstery, trim elements with blue accent strips, an M Short-shifter (in models with manual gearbox), M door sill finishers, an M driver’s footrest and the new M leather steering wheel. In addition, there are three further leather finishes. The decorative surface is designed in Aluminum Hexagon with blue accent trim strip.

BMW says the M Sport package will be offered in September 2012.
