After launching the M3 and M4 Competition M Heat Edition, BMW Japan is offering yet another aesthetic upgrade pack for the regular F30 3 Series range. Called the M Sport Edition Shadow, it was previously sold as a special edition offering, but now it’s a permanent addition to the compact executive model.

This includes all 3 Series variants sold in the Land of the Rising Sun, from the 318i, which is priced at ¥5,330,000 (RM192k) to the range-topping 330e iPerformance that costs ¥6,800,000 (RM245k). Firstly, the kit comes with a blacked-out kidney grille, smoked headlamps and taillights, 19-inch M Sport wheels and a special Sunset Orange paint colour.

The cabin gets black leather upholstery with contrast blue stitching and steel pedals as standard. As per the usual M Sport treatment, the rooflining gets an anthracite finish instead of the off-white material found in Sport and Luxury trims. Otherwise, the rest remains unchanged.

In Japan, the F30 is available in sedan and estate (Touring) body styles, and the M Sport Edition Shadow option applies to both.

In Malaysia, the current line-up consists of the 318i Luxury, 330e Sport and 330e M Sport.
