This carries the look of being penned in a budget meeting. We can save $11 of plastic per car if we just cut the rear quarter panel off right here, who needs cohesion of design anyway?

To each his own, I saw one in CT a few days ago and did not like it, but I agree the sound was good for a regular car.

Thank you for sharing! Do you have any pictures of the front?
I tried, but my son threw a ball at me from the backseat so it was ultra blurry then every other shot of the front had another car in the way or we were under a long underpass....I tried!!

Unlikely, would've been hard to keep up with that thing
Yea, we were in the 328 with my wife driving.....we weren't catching that.

I'm not on board yet. However, if I were BMW, this would have been the release color for sure.

Just like M140i, M240i, X3/4 M40i, M550i, M760Li and even M550d for example, which have been around for a while now.

M for misleading. Leads people to believe it's an actual ///M car.

This carries the look of being penned in a budget meeting. We can save $11 of plastic per car if we just cut the rear quarter panel off right here, who needs cohesion of design anyway?

Not a fan of sunset orange on the current 3 or the new one coming in. Does anyone know if Citrin Black Metallic will be offered for the new M340I as an individual color? It wasn't listed on the other post with the M340I spec.
