This car looks very nice. Thanks for the pics. I love the new wheels. And suede steering-wheel is cool too. But I donīt like that it has red needles when itīs not a real M-car.

Jspeed,

Interesting. The buttons for the temperature is different and located on another place than before.

The 6 speed and the extra 10 hp

The rest of it . I'm not a fan of interior d'Elvis. The exterior is half M3 half SP. In OW, half-assed. It wreaks of cheap boy racer rather than M3.

Woah, alcantara steering wheel. Nice touch, but I wonder how that will wear over time.

I like the wheels, but I would hate to clean them. I don't care too much for the alcantara steering wheel.

I agree with Jspeed the climate control looks different.

From that pic, I don't like the steering wheel, and the rest of the interior looks like it's going to be too plain. Thanks!

edit-->just saw part two of your pics with interior shots...

Hmm.. what's that suede steering wheel going to look like after a year's use.

Not sure I like the look of the whole package... looks a little too "Pep Boys" for me.

If it was a real performance package

BMW would have gotten rid of the lame MPG needle and given us an oil temp instead.

It looks like 275s in the rear?! That's quite a difference from the 'regular' 330 sports package. Any clue what the fronts are?

Not bad, though the interior (and exterior) appointments don't do it for me. I really like my titanium headlight housing.

Wheels look ok but would be a problem to clean. I don't like the spoiler or the fuzzy steering wheel. Imola red II looks like bright red...too much orange.
All in all, not worth it IMO.

Itīs just the lightning in the pics. Imola red II is the same one as on the M3īs and looks great in real life.

I donīt think the suede steering-wheel will be a problem. I have seen several M3 Sport Evos and the steering-wheel still looks very good on them.

Nope. 255's in the back. I didn't notice what was on the fronts. And the car looks even nicer when you are up close 'n personal!

One thing I have always disliked about e46 sedan is the foglight arrangement: overly stylized little "anal portholes". This is a great improvement IMO.

I was thinking that also. The E39 setup looks similar on that half, with another set of temp buttons on the passenger side.

Hopefully, BMW will give the feature back to the 3er.
