The 2 Series Convertible replaces the previous 1 Series Convertible, bringing rear-wheel drive dynamics to the small premium sports car segment. If you’re after a bit more sportiness, that’s what the M Sport package is for.

It comprises of a neat bodykit including unique front and rear bumper bars, some matching side skirts, and a chunky little diffuser at the back supporting high-gloss chrome exhaust tips.

A set of lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels complete the look, with sports lowered suspension giving it an impressive stance. The M Sport suspension drops the 2 Series body by 10mm, also improving handling.

Inside, passengers are greeted with a clubsport-style decor, with Aluminium Hexagon sports seats, a unique leather steering wheel, and some Estoril Blue trimmings. There’s also various M-labelled details such as the pedals and instrument cluster.

The M Sport package will become an option for all models except the M235i which is already specially developed by M Division.

BMW Australia is yet to announce the official local lineup and prices. It will go on sale internationally in February, 2015.
