Search the forum to find the option code for sport package. Once you have that, look under the rear seats and there is a sheet of paper that lists all the options that car has (build sheet I think it's called).

Interesting. Under what seat is it?

I remove my rear seats all the time and I haven't seen anything.

If you really want to know, go to the dealership with the VIN.

You can try the other obvious hints, if you have sport seats, a steering wheel with M coloured stitching, and 16" stock wheels (or a 16" spare aluminium wheel)

There is only like 0.59" difference in suspension height, and sport and non sport struts are pretty much interchangable.
