I just was browsing over at .org (I don't know why, I was just bored) and I came across a few posts about a performance package option for '03 330's. Here the link if you wanna go check it out.

Its mostly some guy *****ing cause he already bought a '03 330 and now there is some anouncement about a performance package being available. I did a quick check here, at the fest and on bmwusa but I didn't find anything about this. Have any of you heard about this?

Here's some of the details of the package:
10 more horsepower
6-speed short-shift transmission
Shorter final drive
Higher Tuned Suspension
18" Wheels
Alcantara Steering Wheel/Seats
Anthracite Headliner
Black Cube Trim/Optional Silver Cube
Red Gauge Needles
300 RPM Higher Rev-Limit
Specific Aero Package
New Exhaust
Shadowline Trim (around windows)

ya heres some pics of it..........
The all-new Performance Package for the 2003 330i Sedan will make its debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on January 2nd, 2003. The 330i sedan continues to win comparison test after comparison test on the strength of its performance and handling prowess. Never being a company to leave well enough alone, the introduction of the Performance Package will raise the driving experience of the 3 Series Sedan to an even higher standard.

The 330i Performance Package has been created exclusively for the U.S. market for enthusiasts by enthusiasts at BMW Individual, a division of BMW M GmbH.

There is no aspect of the driving experience that has not been enhanced by the Performance Package. Modifications to the 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine, which include different camshafts and performance-modified Digital Motor Electronics, yield a ten horsepower increase to 235. For the first time in a 330i a six-speed manual transmission will be standard. With the Performance Package it will include a short-throw shifter. The package also includes a shorter final drive ratio. The benefits of these modifications are immediately apparent - the 330i with a Performance Package will accelerate from 0 - 60 miles-per-hour in 6 seconds, about half a second faster than a standard 330i. To match the straight-line performance a new sports suspension, more aggressively tuned than the 330i's standard sport suspension, is mated to 18-inch wheels with mixed-size performance tires. In addition to the wheels and tires the exterior of the 330i Performance Package is distinguished by its Aerodynamic Package, black headlight trim, high gloss shadowline trim and a new exhaust that not only appears but also sounds more aggressive.

The look and feel of the interior has been refined with cloth and Alcantara sport seats matching the Alcantara sport steering wheel. An anthracite headliner and Black cube aluminum trim complete an ambiance tailored to the enthusiast. Silver cube aluminum trim is optional. The instrumentation includes red needles while the tachometer reflects the modified engine's 300 higher rpm limit. Production of the 330i Performance Package will begin in March 2003 with the first cars arriving at BMW centers in April.

is that front and back bumper stock in europe?
