A brand new BMW 330i equipped with a plethora of optional M goodies is on display at an Abu Dhabi dealer.

A few months ago, the 3-Series received one of the most subtle facelifts ever elaborated by BMW and now a 330i has landed at the company’s Abu Dhabi Motors dealership with numerous accessories from the M Performance catalog. This Mineral Grey Metallic example comes with a carbon fiber front splitter, side skirts, rear spoiler and rear diffuser - all of which have been painted in red while the kidney grille is now blacked out and adorned with the M colors.

Red accents were also applied onto the 19-inch double-spoke style 405 M wheels while on the inside it has gained a wood trim, Dakota leather upholstery and a sunroof. This is a rear-wheel drive example, but BMW is offering the 330i with an xDrive setup as well and both of them can be had with an eight-speed auto and an eight-speed sport auto while the rear-wheel drive version is also offered with a six-speed manual.

Replacing the 328i, the BMW 330i has a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with 252 PS (185 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. When equipped with the manual gearbox, the 330i runs the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 5.9 seconds while the automatic slashes 0.1s and in all cases the top speed is electronically capped at 155 mph (250 km/h).

In terms of pricing, the rear-wheel drive BMW 330i kicks off at €39,750 in Germany if you go for the manual gearbox and rises to €41,900 for the automatic and to €42,210 for the sport automatic. As for the xDrive version, this one can be had with the auto from €44,400 and with the sport auto from €44,710.
