You might consider getting the track handling package. That comes with the M adaptive suspension. It allows you to switch between comfort and sport modes. I drive around in comfort mode since the roads around me are garbage and even with the 19" runflat tires, it's quite smooth. Anyways it gives you some nice flexibility.

Did you get the adaptive headlights? LEDs are standard but the adaptive ones are extra
- at least they were when I bought my 340i last year.

Buy the clutch stop from BMS, you should change it at the delivery of your vehicle

Cost 10$

As mentioned earlier, another vote to add track handling package to the build. More than worth if the roads are less than perfect in your geography.

Thanks for feedback everyone, my 340 started production week of 5/14 and could not change specs. The production end date is estimated to be 5/28.
