The smoothness, power delivery, sound, steering (it's better but still not a lot of feedback) & ride quality (might be RFT vs PSS).

The 328i was more jerky in sport mode. My wife noticed the 340i is a much smoother the moment she sat on it.

The sound makes huge difference even with stock exhaust.
The 328i was plenty fast, the 340i is VERY fast!

Been on sport mode exclusively, but I'm not going crazy on the RPM during the break in period.
Did a moderate acceleration at the red light. 0-40, pulled like a rocket!

One thing I noticed that I kind of miss the adaptive headlight from the 328i.
It's most noticeable on the highway ramps. It's nice to have adaptive light but I wouldn't want to pay $900 extra for it.

I'm not familiar with US packages but do you have M adaptive or M Sport suspension? Either way, I'm super surprised how high the car sits given its a RWD car. My 428i GC had a much smaller wheel gap (it had the M adaptive suspension)

haha...I let it rip, gone 80+...Engine needs exercise..
i've been lenient on the brakes...I did the same on the E90. I had adaptive on E90, so I got it again.

It has M adaptive. I think might be the angle.

Yeah, could be the angles of the pics. Plus, you have 18", I'm used to seeing 19". Anyways, I'm super jelly you have your car. Mines coming sometime in January in the same colour combo and RWD

Nice car!

I picked up the same BBS SR winter setup from TireRack due to arrive in early January. Are you changing out the BBS center caps with BMW logos? I think 56mm logos + blank caps from eBay might work.

I think I'll keep the BBS cap. It looks nice.
What tire did you get for winter?

I got the WS80. Even though the reviews said it's dry handling is much improved I still find it kind of funky. Can't wait to get back on the PSS in April.

I just ordered a set of WS80 tires a couple days ago; what do you mean they're funky?

Steering at center feels not as tight. A bit louder road noise. I guess it's one of the winter rubber cons.
Once I experience it on snow I might thank myself for getting it.

Exactly...I'm on Michellins X-Ice XI3. Steering feel was off/funky with them..not as tight with MPSS...I thought I was hallucinating..
