Had this one with M-package and "sport" seats, the worst sport seat ever produced by BMW, unless you are a huge wide guy the seat will not give you any lateral support. Sold the car because of this, otherwise its a beutiful car but a little underpowered for some.
It lapped the Nurburgring just as fast as my previous 192 hp E46 325iM SMG because it handles very well with M-suspention and 19" wheels.
