Well, a 340i leaves the factory de-tuned..

We're talking a difference of c.10% here, so it's just fiddling with boost psi.

Let's wait for the new S58 M3..

Congratulations! Great to finally see it! How are you finding the jump?

I done the exact same 320d to 340.

Cheers mate.

Nothing could have prepared me for the difference in power and sweet sound of the engine and exhaust. The kids love it too.

How you enjoying yours?

Would a bluespark off a m140i work with a 340i?
Both have the same b58b30mo variant
