I think (at lest in the past) there was language in the UDE description saying that orders placed prior to participation in the event do not qualify. But doesn't hurt to check

If you get m-sport, you don't have to pay additional $600 for wheels, this is just for 19in ones.

So the difference between the m-sport and sport is $600. And (not quite sure) with the sport line,...

The power is fine on either one, obviously better on 35i. Just don't expect the e90/e46 handling, can't happen. It is very good for an SUV though.

my opinion: 35i has a better engine, 28i has a better transmission. The difference in price you know, so test and decide. M models come with sport suspension, so it is going to be different.
