I have a CF front lip and I think it looks pretty good. I'll probably do a CF rear diffuser too.

you have a 330Ci "Sport" package. sport is also known as "ZSP". you do not have an M-Sport package nor a "ZHP"

the leg adjuster seats are the 10 way adjustable "Sport" seats used in the Sport Package. sure they could have been ordered as a stand alone option but doubtful.
you have nothing ZHP (Performance Package) on your car.
M-Sport wasn't offered in the USA

you have headlight washers, so you may have the Cold Weather Package(ZCW): heated seats, ski pass-through in rear seat, headlamp washers.

I got a pretty decent amount of info from a BMW VIN Decoder, there are free ones online. Shows the engine, for the most part the package, etc. Although I found some cool things that weren't listed, but not standard neither like an ipod connector that was pushed down below the stereo (found it replacing the stereo).

Try googling BMW vin decoder on google search and the second one is free and good.

Not a fan of the hamann lip. Never really understood the point. Its just like a big flat thing underneath your bumper I'd say go splitters or an arqray lip I've been seriously considering getting one. But tanti soldi $$$

The splitters? They definitely add a bit more aggression to the front end
