M Sport Package for BMW 3 Series Convertible

February 29th, 2008



 

The sporting character of the popular BMW’s 3 Series Convertible will soon be intensified with introduction of an optional M Sport Package.

Enhancing not just the sleek and elegant styling of the open-air two-door model, but also driving dynamics and passenger comfort, the BMW 3 Series Convertible, equipped with M Sport Package, will be available for customer deliveries in May.

The arrival follows the successful November launch of the M Sport Package for the 3 Series Coupé.

The popular BMW M Sport Package is available on both 3 Series Convertible models, with prices varying because of the different equipment levels applying to the 325i and 335i variants.

The M Sport Package makes a dramatic styling impact with an asymmetrical 18-inch wheel and tyre combination comprising 8J x 18 Star spoke 193 M light-alloy wheels with 225/40 R18 tyres at the front, and 8.5J x 18 wheels with 255/35 R18 tyres at the rear.

Maximising the grip of this wheel and tyre combination is the BMW M Sports suspension that adds an even more dynamic emphasis to the 3 Series Convertible’s on-road abilities and lowers the car by 15 millimetres.

The purposeful stance provided by the M light alloy wheels and M Sports suspension is accentuated by the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line, and by the M Aerodynamics Package that includes an aggressive frontal treatment emphasised by larger air intakes, specific side skirts and a dramatic, distinctive rear bumper panel.

The differences continue in the sumptuous 3 Series Convertible cabin, where the M Sport Package cossets the driver and front-seat passenger in sculpted and highly supportive sports seats.

Further highlighting the M Sport Package experience is the M leather steering wheel, as well as the 'Shortshifter' gear lever and the 'Aero' leather handbrake grip.
Aluminium Glacier Silver trim finish and M door sill finishers also highlight the M Sport Package interior. Wood interior trim is optionally available.

If the 18-inch 193 M Sport Package wheel and tyre combination is not enough, a double-spoke 19-inch 225M light-alloy wheel measuring 8J x 19 with 225/35 R19 tyres at the front, and 9 J x 19 with 255/30 R19 tyres at the rear, is optionally available for an additional $1,500.

The aggressively sporty style of the 3 Series Convertible equipped with the M Sport Package is available with a range of colours including two non-metallic’s – Alpine White and Crimson Red – and optional Titanium Silver, Black Sapphire and Sparkling Graphite metallic’s along with the exclusive M-paintwork Le Mans Blue metallic.

The BMW M Sport Package will be available for all 3 Series Convertible models from May.
