M Sport packet for the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo

BMW 3 Gran Turismo M Sport_01The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is also available with the optional M Sport packet. It provides sportier appearance for the car with the aerodynamic package, which includes front apron with large air intake, rear bumper with diffuser,  side skirts and the BMW Individual High-gloss Shadow Line trim. The optional exterior color Estoril Blue metallic ensures an unmistakably sporty appearance. Inside, the M Sport features M door sill finishers, M leather steering wheel and M driver’s footrest and of course sport seats for the driver and front passanger.

The 10mm (0.4 inch) lower M Sport suspension is included as part of M Sport. It works with a firmer spring/damper set-up and stiffer anti-roll bars, and brings with it 18 or 19-inch light-alloy wheels. Alternatively, customers may like to specify lowered adaptive suspension with electronically controlled dampers, which adjusts the damper mapping to the road surface and driving situation. The driver can also use the Driving Experience Control switch to vary the basic suspension tuning between more comfortable or sportier settings according to individual preference.

Variable Sports Steering with Servotronic is available as an option, providing different steering gear ratios depending on the angle of the steering wheel. It means that less steering effort is required for parking and turning maneuvers. Also, handling is sharpened, for example when instantaneous evasive action is required.
