Was there a change in 2011 with the E89 ? Seen a few 23i 's advertised as just Sdrive and others described as Highline - what's the difference ?

High line was just a plusher trim/paint level didn’t last very long.

SDrive is the name for none MSport versions.

Hi, I think the highline editions didn’t have the M sport bumpers, the M sport cars are still called sdrive as that just signifies 2 wheel drive :thumbsup:
