E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

A few ways, but if you're unfamiliar with bimmers, take a look at the front seats for the following---if you have them, you've got the sport package:

1. Adjustable thigh support (manually adjustable forward and backwards underneath your thighs); and

2. Deeper/thicker side bolsters, about 6 inches more than the standard seats.

Take a picture of the seats - and post them here.

If it it pre-2012 (I see your signature says 2008), then look at the front and rear tires - the originals on the non-sport are the same all around, whereas the sport package had a staggered setup (I think - at least my 2011 does)

Yes ... that's how it is on my MY10 123d which does indeed have a M Sport pack.

Mine is a vert but I think the coupe is the same. The non-sport tires are on 16 inch rims and the sport is 17 inch, at least that's the way it was in 2009 for my vert.

Seats are obvious. If you have the sport, there will be a rocker switch to adjust the bolsters on the outside of each front seat bottom cushion. The adjustment is electric even if your seats are manual. The non-sport seats are almost flat, the sport have substantial side bolsters.
