2012 BMW 3 Series M Sport pack now available in Australia

September 4, 2012

BMW Australia has announced the new ‘F30’ 3 Series M Sport package is now available from showrooms, on most 3 Series variants, from the 320i to the top-line 335i.

The M Sport pack brings sports lowered (10mm) suspension, an M Sport bodykit with revised front and rear bumper bars and discreet spoilers, and a set of 19-inch alloy wheels.

The exterior also gets Shadow Line darkened trimmings, and a new eight-bar front grille to separate the pack from the rest of the 3 Series variants.

Inside, passengers are treated to sports seats, Dakota leather, Anthracite roofliner, aluminium with Estoril Blue or Black high-gloss highlights, while the driver gets a sports steering wheel and an M Sport instrument cluster.

As a further option, the M Sport pack can also be had with a boosted brake package with M brakes, while M Sport Adaptive suspension with various settings is available at a lower cost than what is usually offered with non-M-Sport-equipped models. The traditional ‘Estoril Blue’ exterior colour is also on offer.

The M Sport is anticipated to be a popular choice amongst new 3 Series buyers. BMW Group Australia managing director, Phil Horton, recently said about the pack,

“With more than a quarter of all previous generation 3 Series sold in Australia being optioned with the M Sport Package it is clear that our customers place a premium on performance and sportiness.

“The 3 Series has always had the sporting edge in this class and the new M-Sport package epitomises that character.”
