Nice looking!

What's the official Swedish price of the M-Sport package (I'm Swedish too... ) ? Why didn't you get the M-style 19" alloys instead of the 309:s?

Thank you! Offical price will be around 49.000:- SEK for m-sport and 10.000:- SEK extra if you choose 19" instead of standard 18".

The cup holders look different with M sport package (chrome rings rather than 4 springy prongs)

Pics look like the usual BMW configurator images. Couldn't find the M-package on the Swedish configurator, though...

49' SEK is pretty steep, but around where I expected it to be.

What exactly does the M-package include? Aerodynamic package, 18" M-style alloys, sports seats, Pearlpoint interior, Shadowline exterior, anthracite inner liner. Anything else?

How much to add leather instead of Pearlpoint?

Thanks,

Karl

Also includes sports suspension (donīt need it...), M leather steering wheel, door sills with M logo, aluminum interior trim Längschliff fine, M footrest,
Tailpipe in chrome and stainless steel sill.

Not sure about exact cost of leather instead of pearlpoint but I think it was around 15īsek

OK, probably same as for "non M-sport", meaning 19,900 minus 6,900, so 13,000 SEK then?

You still deciding on the color?

Black sure looks striking. We found our Jet Black 330i's tough to maintain. When clean they looked fantastic. Swirl marks were tough without the metallic paint. Not sure how much metallic eases the maintenance factor.

Space Grey looks great to me, too. IMHO, Black has a sportier "tough" look to it, while the Grey still looks sporty but tends toward sophisticated vice "tough".

What tires will you have on your 19" 309's for the Winter? Here I haven't been able to find Winter tires (or even All Season -- which I know is not the same as Winter) for the mixed 309's. Was starting to look for a downsized wheel/tire combo.

Thank you for your comments! I wasnīt sure earlier but I have now decided to go with black saphire, I agree it looks more sporty and clean.

The tires are Pirelli SottoZero and comes with the complete set with 309īs from BMW part number 36 11 2 184 637 (donīt know if you guys have the same partnr)

Arvid, have you considered the oyster rather than beige leather?

I have the beige in my 5 series SE but think the oyster looks more sporty and might compliment your m sport better?

Both will look nice with the sienna wood (as does the balck leather)

Second that. Color is always a matter of personal taste of course, but I've always found that beige works best with "warm" exterior colors, like green, dark red and similar, whereas "cold" exterior colors like grey, white and black need corresponding interior colors like black, grey etc.

But I'm an interior design buff as well, so don't take it too serious...

Last few cars (BMW and Jaguar) have been black paintwork with beige leather and wood trim
