LCI = Life Cycle Impulse. It's a BMW name for when they do an update "mid cycle" and not a completely new model. F30 has had a few LCIs since 2012.

LCIs usually occur in year 5 of BMW's 7-year cycle.

I believe the F30 LCI was introduced as a MY16 - the same year that they changed the designation to 340.

Yes, think that's correct. But there were incremental improvements in MY '14...just maybe not called LCI.

There are generally subtle improvements or changes from each MY within the same chassis and without their being an LCI.

There were some changes from MY13 -> MY14, like NBT iDrive changes, but this wasn't an LCI.

LCI's are generally also married to minor body redesigns.

BMW needs to do with the 3 series what Honda did to the civic, come back to it's sport's car roots and forget to try to please everybody. The best BMW is the 2 series now, it's more sporty and you don't see the everywhere like the 3 series.

The civic was never a sports car. It was an economy car. They had the si in the lineup as a performance oriented civic.

Hence the M3 is what the performance car to the 3 as the si or R is the the civic.

My friend leased a new 2017 BMW 330i. Is is any different from previous models? I'm helping him to find a front lip splitter

Not the greatest pics, but

this is all I got given the weather and the fact I have yet to replace my stolen DSLR.

The track handling is there, but is glitchy. You have to start the build with M sport design, then no tier selected. When you get to the packages page click driving assistance. A pop up will come asking if you want to add a the premium tier. Add and continue, then when it's thinking about it then you have to start clicking rapidly just to the right of the popup box (about the same level as the top line of the 20" wheel disclaimer and just to the left of where the check mark is for the driving assistance package. If you do it correctly a second pop will appear asking if you want to add track handling. Click yes.
There is a another glitch that you can't use the build ID to return to the same build. It'll come up with the luxury package with track handling.
Just talk to a dealer. They can use the spec sheet to build the car with track handling

Is there an updated Owners Manual for the LCI, and if so is it online for download? Purchasing a 340xi and wanted to get a head start on the guide.

I e-mailed bmwgenius@bmwusa.com and they sent me a PDF of my manual. You should be able to do the same.
