Hello

Hi all,

Just wanted to introduce myself. Came back into the BMW fold in December just gone, having had a F20 in 2013 for a year or so.

Spec of my car is F30 LCI 320i Sport, Sun protection, LED headlights, Black panel and Tanzanite Blue, added the black genuine M performance grills and what a difference to the front already.

Started off with some coding via BimmerCode. Auto start stop off by default, M performance logo, cornering lights on, digital Speedo, red sport dials and idrive off when driver door open.

Thanks for reading,

Armaan

Hi all,

Images attached - a bit dirty at the moment with all the storms etc, but in my opinion, one of the best colours I've seen in the 3 and one of the selling points.

Also glad I went for the LCI due to the rear lights and LED fogs (I think)...also missed that it has HK sound.

Greetings!

Good to see a non-M Sport model for a bit of change My first F30 was a 328i 'Luxury' in Melbourne Red and it was a good look. I also like Tanzanite Blue, so much so that I had a '96 Soarer resprayed in that colour.

And the non m sport, luxury seats are imo so much more comfortable. Wish you could spec MS cars with them.

Where are you in the Midlands? If you've not got the dongle or app yet then I'm happy for you to do some coding...

Planned next is the genuine gloss black boot spoiler (Matt black ones are everywhere on ebay, but I want it to match the grille). This will be after I get the gloss black M3 style side mirrors, ones with a fin...

Not a problem - if you follow the online instructions itís very easy. I did a batch of coding in one ECU, then disconnected it first to ensure it all worked. Then you can set it all up again and do the rest.

Iíll be around so not a problem.

Lovely colour. I had Imperial Blue on my F34 Luxury, all these darker blues look very classy.
