    Hi All,
    A mate of mine is going to look at a 330 ci se sport tonight but i have done a few checks on the car and it is coming back as a 330 ci se with no mention of sport. Should i be suspicious ??

    looks like a sport but it should have m tec badges on the door sills and on the wheels gearknob etc also i think the rear wheels should 8.5j wheels and 8.0j on front those dont look offset to me i had a 325 sport and i had all these as standard. front bumper looks like it has come off a face lift model ie after 2001 so its probably a se not a sport looks nice though hope this helps

    That car is an SE according to the logbook! It looks nice, but where are the front foglights gone? Original Sport bumper?

    My mate's old 330Ci had a very similar plate to this one, his came from Holland Park BMW in West London, now HROwen's I think.

    Any reasonable dealer will give you the original specification sheet if you give them the registration number, i.e. what options were ticked at time of sale.

    A few people advertise their cars as Sport or M-Sport to make it appear more interesting i guess. Some advertise as M-Sport when its something like a 02-03 plate which is also odd as iirc the Sport didnt change to the M-Sport until 54/05 plates.

    I could be wrong though but im sure i read it somewhere

    M-sport should have or more plain rear bumper (no reflectors), fogs in front bumper, larger skirts flared towards the rear. Also the steering wheel is wrong. There should be 'M' badge detailing throughout that I didn't see. Nice colour though!

    Mines a 04 plate so could have started then. Didn't know they took so long to introduce the M-Sport but comes to think of it I haven't seen an older one.
