Sport vs M Sport package

Can someone please explain the the difference between the sport package and the M sport package other than the front and rear fascias on the E 89?

Truthfully? Nothing, really.

I BELIEVE the M sport is 10 mm lower. Don't quote me on that. I think you get a different steering wheel too?

M steering wheel
M adaptive suspension
M door sill
aerodynamic kit
different wheels
different aluminum interior trim
M logos on the wheels, steering wheel

IMO, the aerodynamic package gives the car a much better (more aggressive look) and the steering wheel is terrific.

Post Wolf in sheep's clothing

The sports package includes

- Adaptive M Suspension which lowers the chassis by 0.6 inches and electronically adjusts the dampers
- 10-way power-adjustable sport seats.
- Increased top-speed limiter

It misses all M design elements (i.e. badges) and steering wheel.

So kind of a wolf in sheep's clothing ....

You also get a different front and rear diffuser, which IMO look better- more aggressive.
