There's a Reverse Superman Z3 MC here, Imola with the Estoril interior. It's, ah, rather unfortunate.

NO, I'm not sure.

As I said, I "believe" that the changes to the MT were for all MTs, but it the Msport clearly states that that is an Msport thing, then let's go with that.

BTW, I looked up the gearing of the MT in the 335i and was surprised to find that the drive gears have not changed from what I have in my 09 135i MT. The only change is a shorter final drive from the previous 3.08 to the F30 MT's 3.23.
It'll help to move it out better, but highway cruise rpm is going up as well.

Exclamation No Active Cruise with M Package??

So wait... did I read that right in the ordering guide? No Active Cruise Control with the M Sport Package?! Don't tell me I need to wait to MY14 to get both.

I think the restrictions was no Active Cruise with 6MT (only available with 8AT).

Iiiinteresting. When I bought my Z3MC I really wanted estoril with blue/black, but it was simply too hard to find. After 3 months, when the perfect silver+grey/black popped up only 400 miles away, I jumped on it.

What was interesting to me was how common blue/black interiors were -- not just on blue cars, but also on silver and other colors. Amazingly, the most common interior for the silver cars was all black. My two-tone grey/black is actually extremely rare, for some reason. I'd think the less gaudy two tone interiors would have been more popular?

For an F31? I really want the lovely saddle brown, but BMW makes you buy the Luxury line for that.. ick. Guess the interior will have to be some form of black. Would love Estoril M sport with the blue trim.. or a big-bird mode atacama yellow with black interior

Updated M-Sport Wallpaper Images on bmw.com

FYI -- BMW has updated and improved the wallpaper images at bmw.com. These images are more photo-realistic and include all the latest M Sport visuals for each model (including xDrive). Here is a direct link to the configurator:

http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicle...isualizer.html

When you download a wallpaper image, the default Model=3A51 (AG code for European 328i sedan, from the Pricing & Ordering Guides). This code is part of the URL in the browser, so you have to edit it to display the other models. You can also add or delete option codes.

The examples below are for an M Sport configuration with the URL changed to Model=3B93 (USA 335i xDrive sedan). Note the USA foglight deletion, USA amber side reflectors, and xDrive emblem on the rear deck. Example model numbers include:

3A51 European 328i sedan
3A53 USA 328i sedan
3A91 European 335i sedan
3A93 USA 335i sedan
3B51 European 328i xDrive sedan
3B53 USA 328i xDrive sedan
3B91 European 335i xDrive sedan
3B93 USA 335i xDrive sedan

This is now a better place to check out the M-Sport colors.

Thanks for that link! I'm not smart enough to make blue brakes though....used the small configurator to make a M sport, in black....with proper wheels...still nothing.

EDIT: when you click the download it opens a new window...now it has blue brakes. hmm interesting.


in black it really needs the foglights for appearances

Only the high-resolution wallpaper image that you can download with the arrow button has changed. The basic configurator image is unchanged.

M-Sport Brakes are option code 2NH, so you can add or delete S02NH (code with S0 prefix) in the URL to add or delete this option in the wallpaper image. Some options appear automatically when you download the wallpaper, even though they are optional.

Wonder what that means for us US ppl. (it showing up as an option code, but not being on the option list released the other day) - I don't know which way to bet, but I'm thinking it will just be standard on the M sports in the US.

Hmmmm. Took a gander at the bmwusa build page for the 328i. Apparently, wheels are now an option on the base model. lol

Agree. I think the F30 model/options are not at all clear. Used to be easy when you could just order the sport option, but with the new "lines" it seems that most of it is appearance and other fluff just to add another profit item. Fine, none of us have to order any of that stuff, but with some things now only coming in packages, you either ante up the bucks - maybe for a lot of stuff you don't want, or you don't get it.

On a side note, LOL at Cadillac for making RFTs standard on their 2L turbo models. Obviously, they didn't spend much time reading BMW boards.

That's it! Thanks to this guy, I'm no longer getting a base model. I had a tenuous hold on my "Man Card". But now, I've stepped back from the brink.

Yeah, agreed. Do you think it would be possible in the future for a dealer retrofit?

I'm gonna get the LED fog lights like the one on the c class. It'll look awesome on the M Sport Package. I got a quote for $60 a piece so it's not bad either...

Anything is possible, you just have to ask yourself if the cost is worth it to you.

I'll probably leave mine alone...as I promised the wife "I won't change anything other than tires". It'll be our DD, so reliability is #1, the rest is just extra.

Don't forget the CDV if you're getting a manual.

Model Designation Deletion

FYI -- For those thinking about de-badging, you can enter Option Code 320 "Model Designation Deletion" into the bmw.com download image to check out the difference. Here is an xDrive M Sport, shown with badges and without:

If you want to see how it looks with tint, add code 420. I want this combination .

Shouldn't code 420 accomplish something else?
