CJ421's BMW F30 340i M Sport 6MT - Mineral Gray/Coral Red

Here is my 2017 BMW 340i sedan. I bought it new in May this year and did a Performance Center Delivery. (Pics from that here.) I custom ordered the car. It is Mineral gray exterior w/ Coral red and the aluminum hexagon interior trim, and it has all package options.

This car replaced my 2011 E92 335i M Sport which I had for 6 years. Nothing was wrong with the E92, I just wanted something new.
(I did a E92 335i > F30 340i review.)

Mods - The exhaust is Dinan (edit: my thoughts here) installed by my dealership ...I could not be happier with the sound. I put some M Performance parts on, I may put some more of those on in the future but don't have any immediate plans.

I am really happy with this car, I like having 4 doors again. There's something about having a sporty car that is very practical. I think BMW did a great job with this car and I'm glad I got one.

Sweet! I also have MG/CR. The Dinan exhaust and tips look pretty stout!

Great pictures, too. The glow from the sunset makes a nice effect.

Wow, that's a gorgeous car! Love the color combination!

I would love to have a B58 engine in F31 but the prices in my country are insane. It would cost about 20.000 Euros more than a B47 320d.

Enjoy it!

You did a great job with these photos, now, two things you need ...

1. Replace the chrome 340 badge with black (or maybe even red, if the two reds match?)

2. Install the Dinan Stage 1.

I will likely take your advice on the pedals and order a set for mine, I love the look.

Thank you! That price hike ...sounds like going from a 340i to an M3 here. An M3 as I wanted it would have been about $20k USD more.

I'm definitely eyeing the tune!

I might wait for the prototype 340i intake Dinan was showing on their FB page ...
