The first pictures and details of the new BMW X3 M Sport have been leaked onto the internet.
The popular upgrade package, particularly with UK buyers, includes changes to the suspension and steering, as well as visual changes to both the exterior and interior.
The exterior has been given a M Sport full bodykit that includes new side skirts, more aggressive bumpers and modified wheel arches to accommodate 19-inch M lightweight alloy wheels.
Interior changes include a multifunction leather sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles and a custom gear selection lever. Front sports seats can also be ordered with Pearlpoint cloth-leather upholstery and an Anthracite roof liner.
Dynamic changes include lowered sports suspension with stiffer dampers and variable sports steering.
BMW has confirmed that the standard car will go on sale on 20 November this year, with the M-sport package likely to follow in in the first half 2011.
