Just got a new M340i xDrive

Just picked up the new M340i. I have had the car about a week and a half now so I figured I would show some pictures of my new car and give some of my thoughts.

The car is mineral white metallic over cognac interior. I really love the combo. The white goes perfectly with the brown interior. Having owned or driven every 3 series since the e36 I must say that the G20 interior is fantastic. There is nothing I would change. Having only put around 700 miles on the car so far I havenít really gotten hard on it, Iíve been waiting to hit 1000 miles. But I must say itís feels fast and from what I have read the engine is going to be able to make some power with a tune. For living and commuting in the Chicago suburbs the traffic sucks and the driver aids are awesome. Iím pretty surprised with the mpg Iím estimating I can get low to mid 30ís all highway and thatís at 75mph.

I plan on doing a few mods,

I want to get rid of all the cerium trim and go black. Iím not sure what to do for the mirror caps, carbon fiber or body color, I know body color would be a lot cheaper. Thoughts on with one?

Iím going to do one black emblems and bmw badges and also delete the front refelector.

Iím going to get a set of snow tires for the winter. Iíve also considered getting some 19s with Michelin 4s next spring unfortunately my car came with all seasons.

When available I plan on doing a racechip tune to the car. Which with more power makes me want summer performance tires.

Overall Iím really happy with the car.

Looks great. I really dig cognac over white. Personally I'm totally happy with the cerium and prefer it over a blackout but you gotta do what you gotta do!

Thanks. Yeah I actually saw both Mocha and Cognac when I got mine and while Mocha did look really good. I loved the Cognac especially with the white.

Looks great! Definitely like the combo of colors.

What made you choose Mineral White instead of e.g. Alpine?

Currently debating AW/MW with Tartufo or Black interior myself hence the question

Yeah I like both colors. I used to have an alpine white e46 330i. In the end I was more concerned about the interior and options. My dealer had a one with with cognac and all the option I wanted and it happened to be mineral white. Had I ordered it I probably would have gone with alpine, but I'm happy with mineral.
