So the only tangible sporty "feel", if any, is going to come from the tires and the steering wheel correct?
Anyone know what the Aerodynamics package is?
correct. M-sport is mostly appearance (body colored bumpers, M-sport steering wheel, larger 19 inch wheels) and for the 35i, paddle shifters (althoguh I think it is now optional for 28i too, which it wasn't when we bought ours.
the m-port steering wheel is thicker than the SAP one and you get 19 inch wheels and body colored bumpers that most feel looks better/more sporty. check the pics.
