Sound identical to my 540i in appearance/package except I have a tiptronic and uglier rims.
Cool, thanks for the info. I do have those seats, so must have that package. But the thing is, It has the sport suspension, shadowline trim etc...and I thought that pretty much was the sport package. I've heard some references to the M-sport package. is there possibly two different "sport" packages?

I found this regarding the 99 540i, and other review sites say the same thing about the 540i. So I'm kinda confused now (not that that's hard )
"540i with six-speed manual amounts to a sports sedan. It comes standard with a sports package that includes a firmer suspension; this package is an expensive option on the other models. The sports suspension comes with firmer springs and shock absorbers, specially tuned anti-roll bars, 17-inch wheels and a 0.8-inch lower ride height."
