Modern Line or Sport?

Looking at black leather interior. I love the ext trim and wheels of modern but am I missing out with sport for those that have driven the car?

I am getting xdrive with DHP on an F31.

Open to a luxury line as well.

Help?

If you want the best performance possible get the sport. If you are daily driving this car to work modern would be fine. You're already making a compromise with x drive so modern sounds like the best choice.

First off, welcome aboard.

One very important thing you need to know:

XDrive + DHP feel exactly the same no matter what car you get. Sport line, Luxury line, Modern line, M-Sport line, or No line, XDrive + DHP is identical. Same suspension, same features, same.

That out of the way, the rest becomes very simple for you. Pick a line from a looks point of view that you like best, put the XDrive + DHP on it, there you go. Luxury is great if you like rich Saddle leather and blingy chrome trim. Sport is great if you like red stitching and blackout shadowline trim. Modern is great if you like the windmill wheels and front whiskers. Either way, XDrive + DHP makes all of them drive identically.

Enjoy.

BJ

Great build. I have black leather with Anthracite and the combination looks very luxurious and restrained.
