But, are the Canadian 2002 (and 2001?) cars the same as the 'special' 2003 ones?
All M sports 01-03 came with the seats, steering wheel, plethora of M badges inside and on the trim and front and rear bumpers as well as lower/firmer ride and style 66 wheels (unless other wheels are ordered by owner at time of purchase).

I could be wrong, but I do also recall reading that all 03 540i's were M sport in BMW's last bid to sell as many as they could by offering the Msport as a regular option. I am going to try and dig up the info on that to verify... either that, or I am thinking of the e60 550i's.
