BMW UK is tinkering with the i3s specs a bit and creating what is calls a “sport package” of sorts. For those customers seeking a more unique look, a choice of 19-inch alloy wheels, sun protection glass, LED headlights and the Harman/Kardon Loudspeaker system can be specified– all for a total of £1,700. This represents a 26 per cent saving to the customer worth £610 compared to buying each option separately.
While this sport package is 100% aesthetic is nature, sources are telling us that we may see something truly sporty in the coming year.
Developed originally as a standard specification for the Japanese market, BMW is considering rolling out a more legitimate sport option for the i3 that stiffens the suspension for greater stability at high speeds. The options may be combined with some subtle styling revisions as well. What BMW will call this package or when we’ll see it is unknown at this time. However we also know that BMW is working on other improvements (including more range) that it may rollout as an LCI refresh in about 18 months.
