#21 of 30 Do I have the Sports Package or not?
Sep 08, 2011 (12:03 pm)
Have a 2008 328xi Wagon, but my documentation (bought the car as a CPO and docs don't include the sticker) does not indicate whether I have the Sports Package or not. Apparently I need to know before this buying tires. (Per previous discussions on Edmonds, I don't have the M steering wheel, that's for sure.) Any help very welcome and much appreciated!

Just look at your current tires.
Are they 16" (base) or 17" (sport package)?
Are all 4 the same size (sport package) or are the rears wider (staggered sport package)?
Replace with the same size(s).

As far as I know, the Sport Package for the 2008 328xi Sport Wagon was purely cosmetic (i.e. seats, trim and steering wheel); it had nothing to do with upgrading the suspension, wheels and tires.
Long story short, no, you do not have a Sport Package from the perspective of which tires to buy.

I can check all your options if you would like. Just need the last seven of your vin number.

I have the same question on my 328i. Can you send the link for the data base you use to look up the options?

great forum, thanks! my 325i light indicates time for new brake pads. are the sport package brakes the same size as base model 325i? i do regular around town driving, no track, any pad/rotor recommendations? i'll do the work myself unless there is something really tricky.
appreciate any help, thank you.

kydfx- thank you! i got an estimate of $516 for front and rear using 'zimmer' rotors, pads. i suspect they are oem but will do some research. mechanic said parts are different for sport package, i am assuming because they are more performance oriented.
appreciate the input!
