Non-Sport With Shadowline Trim???

Greetings to All,

I noticed a 2013 non-sport 535xi at a dealer which had the shadowline trim and prior Sport Package Wheels.

I thought the shadowline trim was only privy to the former Sport Pkg and now the M Sport Pkg which replaced the Sport Pkg????

Any ideas how this combination came to fruition?

Are you sure it wasn't a glossy vinyl trim wrap?

Special order possibly. Might have been ordered by a customer and then refused delivery for whatever reason.

I special ordered Shadowline trim on my F13 M-Sport when it was not available at all in the states and I know someone who special ordered Shadowline trim and alacantara headliner on his non M-Sport F13.

It is possible if you are persistent and push for it.

I did not realize it was a special order. Thanks for the information. Learn something every day.

In response to Quacker, I can't verify whether it was a vinyl wrap or not. I saw it online at Motorwerks out of Bloomington, MN.

Thanks, guys.

Tom

It could have been a 535xi with Individual Package. Individual allows option for either Shadowline or Matte Silver trim.
