I really love the tires so far, although haven't pushed it that hard and mostly short-shifting for now.

I looked at the extra radiator, I think I have to get a shield, makes me nervous.

I like the tech and the adaptive suspension is impressive in that it stays flat, but is not harsh even on rough roads. I had been driving an X5, so really enjoying the handling and how nimble it is.

That looks amazing. What is the ZTK package?

Can the orange reflectors be changed and how to go about that if anyone knows?

Looks sharp! Debating Portimao Blue and Alpine White now!

Are the M Performance parts installed at the port? What does it included? Shadowline for the grill? Mirror caps? It looks glossy and not matte (do they have that?) from here?

Hi,

ZTK is the "track" and cooling package.

Comes with non run-flat Michelin pilot 4S (amazing so far) that are staggered: 225 in front and 255 in the rear.

There are bigger brakes, which precludes having a space saver spare (won't clear the calipers) and an extra radiator/cooler. The cooler is mounted "facing" down under the front of the car (parallel to the ground instead of the normal radiator that is up and down)...

There isn't much/any shielding protecting it. In my Evo VIII I had an aftermarket aluminum undertray to protect stuff in the front, may consider something like that, or just hope for the best.

Thanks

More AW pics (in low-light)

Here are two low-light shots I took this morning. Rainy, drizzly day here in GA but really gives a good look at AW - Cerium Grey contrast with the 792's...

I really have learned to love the Cerium accents because of how it distinguishes the 330i from the M Performance. In addition, it seems to shift from gun metal to copper depending on light source.

No fog lights - they are deleted for larger and more prominent brake cooling ducts as you can see in the pics above.

As far as aesthetics, you get that larger air duct in Cerium Grey finish.

Great looking vehicle! I assume this is an after market tint on your windows? Do you mind sharing what percent tint you have? Same percent all around? I ask because this looks perfect to me ... tinted, but not totally blacked out :-)

I think BMW did a much better job with the design of non M Sport G20s compared to F30 or E90.

With the F30, you really needed M sport kit to make it look good. Sport and Luxury line were visually intentionally boring, and even with an atractive color and large wheels it was still just "Okay".

For my taste, a properly optioned Sport line G20 looks much better than F30 or E90 with the same equipment.

Sweet M340i

Cerium grey kidney frame works great with Alpine White. Much better than the chromed one.

Here's the latest member of the Alpine White mafia. Picked it up last week and have been all smiles since. Black kidney grille is on order, and I'm hoping to have it on the car by end of this weekend. Alpine White + clean tint job = 🔥🤤.

Finally replaced the chrome kidney grille with the m performance black kidney grille. Digging the look in comparison to the chrome grille.

How do you plan on passing inspection in MD with that tint ... looks darker than 35

It is definitely darker than 35%, specifically 25%. My job will relocate me to the west coast in about a year, but if I'm here when registration is due I'll deal with it at that time. I have two years until that's the case.
