    Base vs Sport vs M sport?

    Both sport packages have different suspension bits, the sport seats, and different wheels, and up the speed limiter.
    Any other differences not listed on the website?
    Anyone know if the tire and wheel sizes are different?
    What tires are being used?
    Oil Cooler?

    I'm thinking just get new wheels and tires that I like better from tirerack and Dinan software.
    I guess I need to try the sport seats in person to decide if they're worth it.<img src="http://members.roadfly.org/pmiranda/TMCM_anim.gif">

    The sports seats alone are worth it!

    Sports seats are good

    Key is to try for yourself, a good $tealer should have all combinations covered and you really need to test drive.

    For example:

    E39 - Sports seats were best for me
    E60 - Comfort seats
    E90 - Sports seats
    The 1-series - Sports seats seem to be the best

    E36 coupe & E39 M-tech Sports suspension
    E90 sedan Standard suspension (maybe the run-flat tyres, but the sports suspension felt too hard as they bite at the end of the body roll and to me were not any better than the standard)

    M3 coupe - perfect

    bmwusa says the seats are manual... is that right?

    Sounds kinda weird... I assume that there's just some minor adjustments that are manual but the major ones are power? (Like my E36 has manual head rest and thigh support but power back/forward up/down and tilt)

    Any idea if the M sport package is just appearance differences? It does let you get Lemans Blue but I don't think that's worth another $1600.<img src="http://members.roadfly.org/pmiranda/TMCM_anim.gif">

    Yes, manual. But they can be electric by way of...

    option or PP. Been that way for many years.
