F31 3 Series Touring M Sport delivered

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Got to pick my new Touring MSport earlier today and attach some pictures. My 320d is Mineral grey with aluminium trim and Veneto beige interiour with burl walnut/aluminium trim.
I am extremely pleased with the looks of the Touring in general and this colour combination outside and inside.

The new satnav is amazing. Driving in the city where 3D animations are available, buildings are depicted in extreme detail down to a scale of 10m. The zoom function is much faster than the previous idrive generation.

Lots of other features that will take some time to figure out in all its details.

This surprised me too! The 330D has twin pipes in the F30 but the 320D has a single one

This is the M Performance exhaust, I should have mentioned. The dealer installed it before delivery it is a simple and quick adjustment. Every 320d has a single tailpipe originally from the factory, including mine.

Oh that's so cool, I wish there was one for the 320i
I don't really like the look of the single pipe on mine. It's way too thin as well...

Nice! How much did you pay to have the m sport exhaust added? Did you need to replace the diffuser to get space for 2 pipes?

This is the solution :

Much better price than from the dealer.
And yes you need to replace the diffusor (+- 80 €)

Very nice car, my 330D M Sport touring will have the same interior but EBII outside.

Thank you everyone!

I am extremely pleased with the car. It looks and drives great. I opted for deletion of the M Sport suspension and find the car very comfortable, and it still handles perfect in corners.

I am working my way through the functions in the new Navigation Professional, but I can already say that the 3D city view is a huge improvement.

Concerning the tailpipes: I don't know about the other lines, but on the M-Sport you do not need to change the diffuser. A pre-defined section of the existing diffuser is cut out to make space for the second tailpipe, the operation does not take long. Costs are around EUR 350+tax and work time.

The Veneto beige looks very nice against the Walnut trim.

Wow, very nice colour combo for your sharp looking F31 !!!
The bright window trim gives a nice contrast to the Mineral grey.

I presume you will be replacing those beige velour floor mats with rubber ones before the Norwegian winter begins ?
