The outside of the car, IMO, with an M Sport package looks nice.
I agree with you on the interior, there are component/elements in it that are decidedly cost cutting. The IDrive knob and surrounding button assembly is cheap feeling plastic.
I haven't been in one, but I would image the M Sport has a more upscale interior.
If(when) I move into a new M, it will probably be a M4 ( or M4 Grandsport(?))
