Just in time for Chinese New Year (or, well, just past it), BMW Malaysia has introduced the 118i M Sport and 330e M Sport models to compliment the 1 Series and 3 Series lineups respectively. These models will not replace the 118i Sport and 330e Sport models either, instead sitting a level above.
BMW's M Sport packages usually add a touch of aggression, and these two models are no different. On the surface, both cars are equipped with 18-inch alloy M Sport wheels, along with the M Aerodynamics package and the M Sport suspension package- fairly standard fare all-in-all. There's also the darkening of the kidney grilles as well as the BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line (basically blackedout trim pieces) and a number of BMW M logos.
But the M Sport models go beyond merely M parts. Both cars also benefit from LED headlamps and foglamps, while there is the addition of Park Assist for the 330e M Sport for self-parking functionality. The 8.8-inch Navigation System Professional is also a nice addition for both cars, bringing additional ConnectedDrive functionality as well.
Remote Services and eDrive for the 118i M Sport and 330e M Sport respectively allow pairing with smartphones and enables users to check on various status levels of the car. Specifically for the 330e, owners can also start the climate control remotely to cool the car down.
All BMW Authorised Dealerships nationwide are currently organising a ‘Test-Drive Lucky Draw’ program until Sunday, February 12 th 2017 where visitors who test-drive any BMW model will get to participate in a lucky draw and stand a chance to win up to RM 88,888 to purchase a new BMW vehicle.
BMW Group Malaysia is also collaborating with The Oriental Group of Restaurants where patrons of the premium Chinese restaurants, dining for the New Year of the Rooster are entitled to participate in the ‘Test-Drive Lucky Draw” program. The new BMW 118i M Sport and BMW 330e M Sport come in the colours of Black
