Everything else is just a cosmetic or slightly enhanced (aka suspension or brakes) package/option.
Goodness it's a rough crowd in bimmerfest. I don't know the engine codes! Is there a glossary of terms to sign off on when becoming a member? So far today I've gotten someone telling me I commented on an old thread and you calling me out of not correctly addressing my engine. The S40 is the base engine with RWD which is just delightful to drive and I added the cosmetic M sport package.... Y'all are buzzkills on this bummerfest...***x1f928;
