Did all E46s that have the sport package come with sport seats?
 
Im looking at this BMW for sale here:

Trying to figure out if it has the sport package. It definitely doesnt have the sport seats but it does have the 3 spoke wheel

Sport package has sport seats different steering wheel 17 wheels lower suspension... I might be forgetting a few things but that covers the most of it...

Biggest giveaway is the window trim. If it's not shadowline, it's probably not the sport package. Most people are too nervous to take the window trim off because it's really expensive to replace, pretty fragile, isn't well documented on how to take it off, and uses really strong clips rather than screws.

I'm fairly certain all 2-door coupes came with a 3-spoke wheel. The E92 does that as well.

Coupes all come with the sports suspension standard at least. I think they include the 3 spoke wheel also. The one you linked to doesn't have the sport package wheels (maybe 2002 had different sport wheels tho) or sport seats. Those seats don't look like mine (I have sport seats).

that bmw does NOT have the sport pkg, but all coupes came with the sport wheel and suspension as stated before... i think those wheels are the sport wheels though for coupes.. but if you swapped in the sport front seats youd basically have a sport pkg then.

Those are the standard 330 17x7 wheels that came on the non sport package 330Ci. At least my 2003 non sport package came with those.

As said above, sports suspension, no sports package ... no cold weather package either. Also, I'd hold out for a 330 with a true 5 or 6 speed manual.

If you can get the last 7 characters of the VIN code: http://www.rubmw.ru/vincode/eng/

Right, I busted the clips getting the window trim off my E60. Didn't realize you have to push it OUT not pry it UP. The trim wasn't damaged, but I had to buy a few clips. Had to get it off to change out creaking door seals. :clap:

That's premium package without the cold weather package. Dont get thrown off by the 3 spoke steering wheel.

what are you talking about with the Shawdowline window trim?? :hmm:
Sport Package did not get that. It got the same aluminum trim as non-sport.

Uh the sports package never came with the shadow line trim. Only the zhp did

Alex323Ci 11-01-2012 02:18 PM

to OP no that car does not have the Sport Package (ZSP)

Sport Pacakge as you asked will get the Sport seats. All Coupes get the Sport Suspension and Sport steering wheels. But Sport Package varies slightly by model. On that year, I believe besides the "sport" seats and different wheels may also (not sure about Clear turn signals) .

Definitely not ZSP, might be ZPP, or just a steering wheel retrofit.

2000_328CI 11-01-2012 03:13 PM

My 2000 328Ci came with heated non-sport leatherette seats, 16 inch wheels, 3 spoke steering wheel, and sport suspension... go figure. I always assumed the dealer swapped out the rims or the seats or something.. seemed like a really weird combo.

E RaK 11-01-2012 05:23 PM

Really simple: All coupes essentially have the "sport package" less the seats and wheels, which were an extra ~ $600?
