BMW India has launched the 330i GT with its M Sport kit, slotting it above the 330i GT Luxury Line and making it as the top end variant in the 3 GT series. It is priced at Rs 49.40 lakh, ex-showroom. It is available only in with twin power turbo 4-cylinder petrol mill that does the duty in the 330i GT, with identical power and torque figures of 248bhp at 5200rpm and 350Nm at 1,450-4,800rpm. Transmission too is carried over from the 330i GT which sends the power to the rear wheels. The diesel variant does not come in the M Sport trim.

Visually the 3 GT M Sport gets extra chrome treatment for the tailpipes, center console and refreshed high gloss 9-slat kidney grille, a satinised aluminium makeover for the side window frames, decorative air breather, the M aerodynamics package with front aprons, side skirts and rear aprons with diffuser inserts, M designation in front side panels, car keys and M door sill finishers.

It is equipped with the 10.5-inch multifunctional display, which is missing from the standard petrol 3 GT (the diesel one gets it though). The GT gets the entire passenger pampering stuff and safety features carried over from the base trims. Additionally it gets the HUD with full colour projection which the base trims don’t get. The car comes with 18-inch alloys with 225/50s in the front and wider 255/45 rear section tyres. The 3 GT M Sport comes only in two color options, the alphine white and the estoril blue. The 3 GT M Sport comes at a premium of Rs 80,000 more than the 3 GT Luxury Line.
