Guys, thanks for the compliments but let me clarify.
The M-Sport package adds the following:
Suspension mods like the regular sport package
Sport seats, shadowline exterior trim like the regular sport package
M-Sport only steering wheel (no heat avail but I love it)
More aggressive front bumper, side rocker panels & rear bumper (lower section is gray so choice of paint color will affect how each person feels about the rear look)
rear park distance control included in the package
Different wheels (193M) 18" shod with larger rear tires (255/35/18) than front (225/40/18)
Anthracite headliner (black) this look may affect how it melds with interior upholstery color
Package allows for choice of glacier aluminum trim which I liked and preferred over the brushed aluminum, not applicable to my car but some exterior color options are only available with M-Sport package and some colors are not permitted
aluminum sill plates are standard
The carbon fiber trunk spoiler, is a BMW aftermarket part that I got from Tischer
I like the subtle aspect of the clear coated carbon fiber against the black sapphire metallic paint. I have also changed the stock chrome kidney grill inserts for black slats inside a carbon fiber surround to tie it all together.
Prior to the 2011 MY, when looking I was considering the sport package, but when I saw that BMW was offering the diesel fans the opportunity to add the even more sporting (aggressive styling) aspects offered M-Sport I felt that offered additions that would complement the terrific performance of the 335d's torque perfectly. Everyone who I've taken for a ride is totally BLOWN away! I'm keeping an eye on Stugot's experience with the tuning chip options to enhance that aspect further
Cheers and happy motoring
