Showing off hints of a possible future X3 M model, the M Sport package consists of a reworked sportier front bumper with larger intakes and adds a faux diffuser to the rear bumper. The window frames and and roof rails get some gloss black treatment, and 19-inch M Sport alloy wheels fill the guards.

Where the standard X3 features uncoated bumper inserts and wheel arches for that hardy go-anywhere look, the X3 M Sport package is more sports road-focused with brings body-coloured trim.

Performance upgrades are limited to the handling set-up with the X3 M Sport getting a lower, stiffer M Sport suspension package.

Interior features include a M-branded steering wheel, a short-throw gear shifter, gear shift paddles for the xDrive35i version, sports seats, ‘Pearlpoint’ cloth-leather interior trim and an anthracite roof liner.

The X3 M Sport will firstly debut overseas in the middle of 2011, with NZ receiving the package after a local X3 launch next year.
