R99's F31 330d Touring - BMW Individual Pure Blue - The Build

Hi all, following on from my intro thread, I thought I would start a build thread on here to document the changes I make all in one place!

Progress may be slow initially, but I have some long term plans for this car

Quick intro to the car:

F31 330d Touring
2016 build
BMW Individual Pure Blue paintwork
Oyster interior

It has a nice options list, but I wont bore people with the full details, as I am sure most people already know whats available on there cars!

I collected it yesterday, and I have to say it is night and day compared to my previous E91 325d Touring. The tech and the way it drives with the 8spd is next level!











I will update more once I have got the ball rolling with some mods etc, but my shortlist is the following:

Full GTechniq detail - interior and exterior
6WB retrofit
OEM M3 wheels (black / diamond cut)
BMW M Performance front splinter and rear roof spoiler - colour coded or gloss black
MPPK

etc etc

I had the first mod done last night after getting home which was to enable ID6, DVD in motion and also Extended Bluetooth.

Nice!

I like seeing other people's colour choices. Sometimes you have to be brave as it's a bit late once it's built, but this combination works well. Enjoy..

I know this may be a daft question but the vehicle image (graphic) under my vehicle, is that standard 3 series image? I don't expect it to be exactly the same as colour etc as your car but it would be better if was an M Sport Touring at least. Like the connected drive app

By the way, not criticising, car looks great. Just wondering because I have ID5 not seen this before.

It's a G series car in the picture on the home screen, when you look further into the menu system, the image displayed is a 3 series Touring!

Not sure if there is a work around for that to be honest!

Thanks for all the positive comments guys, I spent about 3 hours cleaning it today trying out all the new GTechniq products that I bought myself!

It's come up literally as new, I couldn't be happier with the car!
