Norwich,

Let's assume for just a minute you don't have a laptop with wifi or an iPad with a 4G connection in hand and you walk up to a car,

Here are the tell tale things to look for:

1) Sport Package: Don't bother with looking at wheels, look at the front seats of the car. If they have extra beefy side bolsters and a slide out thigh extender it has the sport package.

1a) If you want to differentiate the basic sport package from the M-Sport package which is primarily a cosmetic package, look for little subtleties like ///M emblems on the steering wheel and on the wheels themselves. The m-sport package also includes the enhanced front bumper fascia, not to be confused with the 'lips' that are glued on.

If you are trying to differentiate whether the car has the premium package, look for things like lumbar support for the driver's seat, garage door opener controls on the mirror, folding mirrors.

All of the features you are attempting to differentiate are readily discernible with careful observation.
