I dont know about that, but I do think the sports pkg and manual trans should go together. I bought them both for mine. If your looking for a smooth, classy ride though you go non-sport and auto.pbm317 said:Manual w/Sport Package, the only way BMW\'s should be sold
What exactly does SP on an XI detract? Do you mean the 1" larger wheels? There are no XI suspension changes for the SP that I've read, and in many climates, you're going to be getting snows anyways even on an XI...Helmar said:Living in Maine, I needed the AWD of the 330xi.
Loving to drive, I MUST have the manual.
The sport package detracts somewhat from the handling in the snow and ice.
The 330XI manual without the SP gives me exactly what I want and need.
