Mein Auto: 2012 BMW 535xi
Question Sport Question

I just picked up a CPO 2012 535xi with Sport, Premium, Tech, Premium Sound, Cold Weather.

Really liking it; it's my first BMW since my 2007 328i. Nice to be back in the BMW family.

In reading up on the 'sport' package (not the M-Sport), one of the features is supposed to be an increased top speed limit. Does anyone know what it is without the sport, and with the sport? What's the difference?

Thanks in advance!

Think without the sport/msport the top speed limit is 135. With the sport/msport it's 155.

It also needs to have the Summer/Performance tire option, not All-Season, to get the higher top speed.

The best part about MY12 sport package is the standard DHP baked into the package.
It became a standalone option by MY13.

Right. So that wouldn't be valid on the X-Drive then?

I live in snow belt, summer tires are not an option. I'm not going to deal with the hassle of two sets just so my car can give me an even higher chance of earning me a speeding ticket with a side of jail time
