M package is just that, a package. blacked out trim, more aggressive front and rear bumpers, M trim on steering wheel, dead pedal and door sills. I personally wouldn't get a car without it now.

well, I switched the passenger side bulb only to the driver's side, still goes out, so looks like a bulb issue. Email in to mtec to see if they'll replace it. I assume these have a warranty
