Also the cost difference between Sport and M Sport not that big if you upgrade to leather. With the Sport the leather upgrade is about 1100 IIRC but if you upgrade to leather in the M Sport the cost to upgrade is about half of that (due to the fact that M Sport already has high spec alcantara seats compared to the Sport) so actual upgrade difference on that alone is only about 600.

With that in mind the 18" wheels, Estoril blue and other bits and pieces it makes the decision for me at least a no brainer to go to M Sport over the Sport

I do like the 17" dark allows on the Sport version, but all in all a no brainer...
This coincides with my experience (more correctly: my spreadsheet) as well. I feel I got the M styling kit for free, since I would have upgraded either the base model or the sport model to this level anyway.
To me the M styling was decisive, not the colour!
