Howdy,
How do I know if my 530iA 2003 got the sprot package. I only know that I have 235/45ZR17 (factory) fit on it :)

It would include sport seats.

i thought sports seats were an additional option, but could be wrong.
You would certainly have the sport steering wheel, a 3 spoke deal with a thick rim, similar to an M5's. If you don't have sport pkg, you'd have a 4 spoke wheel. I also think you should have shadowline trim (i.e. black trim around the windows), rather than chrome.

I have an 2003 and if you have the sports package you will have the sports seats and the other items mentioned above. You will also have these rims unless they were swapped out.

Also, if it has the sport package and you have 235/45/17s on the front wheels, you should find bigger 255/40/17s on the back - unless someone put the same size on in back for the winter snow season. But since you're in Saudi Arabia, I'm just taking a wild guess that's not the case. :D

Yeah, the best indication AFAIK is

black trim = sport
chrome trim = no sport

MikeFunny,
I have got the 3-spoke (the vertical spoke is split into two and wood trimmed) deal with skinny rim (not the M5 fat one).. Beside I have the montana seats not the comfort (with 16 ways) nor the sports.. and yes the sports here is an option..

All my tires got the same size 235/45 the rear are not different. And yes all the BMWs in Saudi Arania come with balck shadow line and chrome trim no black trim..

The sport seats here are optional but really all I care about is the sport suspension although I cannot tell what's the difference can anyone tell...

On my my BMW AG invoice I have MO I, MO II, MO III and occiana radio can anybody tell what are those...

I have an '03 530iA and I have the sport package - shadowline, no chrome, no sport seats and my wheels are different from yours :dunno:

Guys,
I just checked yesterday my uncle's car really have those nice rims with the M5 wheel. It came with customized seats, customized wood (two colors one on dash and the other on doors) and chrome with shadow line as standard here. How can I tell if mine (with no M5 wheel but a similar one and chrome) has got the sport suspension... :dunno:

But anyway if one can't really give me a sure answer of course you guys know how different is the handling, if so can anyone tell me ? :thumbup:
