September sees the introduction of M Sport models to the majority of the BMW range. Previously Sport models stood as the pinnacle of each model range, excluding the high performance M3 and M5 variants, offering a bespoke sporting suspension package with individual interior attributes.

Now, while the Sport variant is still sold on some models, M Sport enters the fray offering numerous sporting features created by BMW M GmbH in Garching, Germany. All M Sport variants in the BMW range come as standard with M Aerodynamic body styling, M Sports suspension, high-gloss shadow line, M Sports steering wheel, Sports seats, M gear knob, M Sports door sill kick plates, M interior trim and anthracite headlining.
