I like the front bumper on the 35is better than this M-Sport bumper. Also, since the 35is already sits 10mm lower than the 35i, I assume it comes with this suspension and wouldn't get any suspension changes if one were to opt for the M-Sport package, right?

Yeah, I'm not too crazy about the rims. But I do like everything else!

-1 on the rims, as i think the current rim selection is good enough. but i do like that little tiny "m" logo.

-1 on the rear bumper. the reason is i recall the s2000 had a matted rear bumper during the initial release years and then later went to an all color matched bumper, which I liked. one thing positive is that maybe it will help keeping the rear of the car cleaner from dust, dirt, bugs....

+1 on the dead pedal, side sills, and shift nob (sticker?). this is my first bmw 35i and i recall being in a rental x3 with the "m" sport packaging. i was really confused because i thought the "m" line was for "m" cars. these parts look very cosmetic and i feel like i'm buying just the "m" appeal on a non "m" car and giving up my hard earned mula. but i do have to say the "m" logo is appealing as its branding is well known to enthusiasts and even the chicks.

Why are they diluting this model line? Wouldn't it have been enough to just have the 30i, 35i, and M version??? I'm sticking with my pre-ordered 35i. There's nothing Earth shattering about the M or 35is to warrant a $10k-$15k price increase.

I think BMW hit a home run with the 35i. Hitting the ball another 10-15 feet out-of-the-park adds nothing to the end result.

I couldn't have said it better. You are right on!

I'm going to guess the 35is will list around $63k - $65k US. Maybe as high as $69k if extended leather, premium pkg, etc is standard.
M Sport packages run around $4k depending on model.

That means an M Sport 3.0i will run high $50s with a similar look to a $75k loaded 3.5is.

where are the bmw performance add ons ??? i guess most e89 owners are more likely to be willing to spend their cash on bmw performance parts rather than m sport exterior upgrades ... and that includes myself !

also, IMHO the 19 inch BMW performance wheels are WAY better ... maybe its just me
