Sport package adds different exterior trim (shadowline/blacked-out), titanium colored vents in grill and hood, different tire & wheels (19"), sport seats (sometimes comfort seats are optional), black chrome exhaust tips, and sport tuned suspension (slightly stiffer). There might be other options, but these are the major differences from what I can remember. IMO, the options make the X look more agressive and "sporty" but the the ride is a little stiffer than with the standard 18" wheel set up.

Doesn't the standard X5 have 17" tires and sport packaged X5 have 18"?

Also adds a sport steering wheel.

X5 3.0 had 17s standard and sport gave you 18s.

X5 4.4 had 18s standard and sport gave you different 18s. With the sport on the 4.4 you could also opt for 19s at an additional charge.

Read through this thread on another forum. There were forum members that posted images of their MSRP window stickers. If you don't see one for a 2005...you may be able to cull together the info from one that is a 2004-2006 since those are the ones that are post facelift: http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...-when-new.html

Absolutely worthwhile for the look, suspension, drivers steering wheel and more. I have the executive model, but would much prefer the M Sports Pack next time. It is worth noting too that the Sports Pack fit outs run along a different production line than the regular fit out car.
