Joining the all-new 2012 BMW 3 Series at a special event in Munich this week is the new Bimmer's M Sport package. It's no M3 (that's a year or so away), but it offers the best impression yet of the 2012 3's sporting potential.

The 3 Series M Sport package will hit the market around the middle of next year, delivering the requisite styling and handling upgrades.

On the styling front, ticking the M Sport option will get you a new and angrier front bumper, a rear diffuser and side skirts, chrome exhaust tips and a set of 18-inch alloy wheels.

Under the skin, there's stiffer anti-roll bars, sports suspension and a 10mm-lower ride height.

Inside, there's sports seats trimmed in a cloth and Alcantara combination, blue M Sport highlights, M-badged pedals, footrest and doorsills, along with a M Sport shifter (manual models) and steering wheel design unique to the M line.

The optional M Sport package comes with options of its own, of course, including 19-inch wheels, bigger four-piston brakes at the front, adaptive suspension and electronically-controlled damping, and a unique M paint option.



As with most of the M Sport options, expect this one to join the line-up when the new 3 Series hits Australia sometime in 2012.
