Can I install M performance parts on base a 330i?

Hi Bimmer fam,

So, I’ve had my new 2019 330i now for about 2 weeks. I’m starting to really regret not getting the M340 I just feel like the base 330i exhaust note is pretty much non-existent and the car doesn’t look beefy enough. Mine doesn’t even have the fog light package.

The reason I got the base was because my sales advisor offered me a HUGE discount on a showroom model. Don’t get me wrong though, I LOVE the car so far. I just wish it had more of a more aggressive vibe.

Do you think it’s possible for me to get the dealership to install M Performance parts? Like, maybe switch out the exhaust system, install the sport bumpers, etc? Or would that be too try-hard like “look at me I’m driving a fake M340”?

I’ve looked online for some aftermarket parts, but it seems like there’s not a lot of options right now, I’m guessing because the car is still too new.

Any suggestions of what I could do to beef up my car a little?

Thanks fam!

It's all comestic, so no reason why not, but I don't know why you would. Put the money to one side and use it to upgrade the next one.

I would go with the black m performance grill since it’s cheap and easy. Just make sure you get the one appropriate for whether you have the parking assistant. Would otherwise wait until a few exhausts come out and then compare price and sound if you are so inclined.

Did you lease or buy? My brother ran into the same thing, getting the 330i after being offered a huge discount, but wanting to add a whole bunch of aftermarket items after the fact just negates all the savings you received. IMO I just like getting a car out the door that I really like and leaving it be. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah I was looking into the black grill which I feel is not too big of an investment so I donít mind spending the money on that. Yes, Iím dying to see what future exhaust options will be out.
