The E46 catalog specifically states that the M aero package can only be had with the sport package. Driving by a BMW dealer today, saw an M aero package that did not have the 17" sport alloys and had the regular 328i alloys. I stopped and asked the dealer if this is a sport package with wheels swapped and he said no. He said that the owner specified the premium package with the M-aero. I thought this was not possible according to all the E46 catalogs thus far. Apparantely, you could have. How strange.
