M-Sport Package for 2012 BMW 3-Series Released

BMW have uncharacteristically released details about their M-Sport Package for the BMW 3-Series sedan.

Although it's scheduled to be launched next summer and BMW are often tight-lipped over their M Sport kits for new models, the details about the M Sport package for the all-new 2012 3-Series have now been released. The Bavarian manufacturer has produced a package with special exterior and interior features that will be available on all three equipment lines including the basic trim level, which will give clients the chance to customize their purchases as they see fit.

18-inch alloys complement the standard M aerodynamic parts such as chrome tailpipes, a bespoke front bumper and rear diffuser, and BMW Individual High-Gloss Shadowline trim. They've also added a lowered M Sport suspension, which drops the car by 10mm, firmer suspension, damping, and harder anti-roll bars. Interior upgrades include sports seats in distinctive cloth/Alcantara upholstery, trim elements with blue accent strips, M door sill finishers, M driver's footrest, a new M leather steering wheel and an M Shortshifter for models with a manual gearbox.

As you would expect from BMW, optional extras are aplenty and range from an exclusive M paint shade, an adaptive M Sport suspension with electronically controlled damping, to 19-inch alloys, and larger M Sport brakes. Prices are yet to be released but will likely follow the release of the premium sedan in February.
