M-Sport available on bmwusa.com

Looks like the M-Sport package is available on BMW USA configurator now! Does anyone know why the Carbon Black M color doesn't seem to be an option?

i posted this earlier, but there's another question that is pressing: does the m-sport package include dynamic damper control? It shows up on the configurator, but my build sheet from BMW doesn't include it. if m-sport includes both dynamic damper and performance control, there's little need to spend the extra $1,300 for variable steering.

hope someone can get the answer since i'm about to place my order!

The BMW USA site will continue to be glitchy for awhile (it usually is). What is dumb is that checking the M Sportpaket requires the Premium package, essentially making the M sportpaket more like, $5k since ZPP costs so much (and is so useless).

This is a a good question.. If you get M Sport package, is DHP virtually already included? There should be no need for the additional 1400$ package as it seems the same features are included in M package. Thoughts, anyone?

I think the US is the same as in Canada, and here, you only get the DDC if you opt for the $1500 "Dynamic Comfort pkg". So, the MSport pkg itself, does not have the damper control in it. My order includes both MSport and Dyn Comfort, so I will get the DDC.

Correct. With the M Sport Package you get the Damper Control and Performance Control. But the DHP only goes down by $100 if you select it. So DDC and PC only cost $100? Wow.

FWIW, that is the ugliest body kit I've seen on a BMW in a very long time.

To each his own I guess - I think it looks better than the standard body, especially the rear bumper.

Wow, certainly is a subjective call, as all styling is. I prefer the MSport look myself and I don't really care what others think about it. That comment from a guy who says all those posters who were liking their first gen X3s better than the new one are wrong.....

Not quite. I said that you'd be wrong to state that the 1st gen X3 can out-perform the F25. You are more than welcome to like it as much as you want. But liking it won't make it faster, nimbler or more comfortable.

Fair enough. To me, it looks like an Acura.
