Wow! That car is beautiful. Love that color, love the wheels. BMW really is the ultimate driving machine.

My build includes:

Mineral Grey Metallic paint, Black Dakota Leather w/ Oyster highlight, Aluminum Dark Carbon trim, M-Sport Package, Track Handling Package, Adaptive M Suspension, 6MT, 704M wheels, heated front seats and PDC.

After taking delivery I drove pretty casually the past two weeks until I hit 1,200 miles. I just did a small break in service yesterday, consisting of an oil and filter change. I also installed Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires; BMW Black Kidney Grilles; M-Performance Alcantera & Carbon shift knob/boot, e-brake handle/boot and armrest. I also put all weather mats in the front.

So after the M-performance parts, tires and oil change, I was finally able to open it up last night a little bit... wow... this car is awesome. (I knew it was awesome prior to doing the beak in service, but I had been limiting myself to 4,500RPM... )

I am coming from an E90 335xi (AT) which I love (is now my wife's car) but the 340i is refined in so many ways. My biggest gripe is the steering in the F30... even in Sport+ it's just not the same as the E90... but I absolutely love everything else.

Anyway, that's my short intro on the new car, I am looking forward to many miles of fun. My future plans include an exhaust suite... debating MPPSK or AWE... time will tell.

Thanks for looking!
Gorgeous car

Let's just call 2020 the year of house projects. Deck, kitchen, doors, roof and bathroom. About halfway through. The 340i took a back seat but all for the better.
