Love it. Best of luck with it.

My suggestion is your next move should be to get a new set of rims. Do not pass go; do not collect M Performance Parts; go straight to a rim shop.

Wow! 340 G 20 is growing on me. The "ultimate" all-around daily. So happy that we are not required to run front license plates in Nevada USA. Beautiful car. My hat is off to you sir.

I absolutely LOVE that green, and not only is it a nice color, but it goes beautifully with the car. I like the black grill, and with that deep black green exterior I think you absolutely made the correct choice with the black interior.

My thought is that black wheels would make the car look drop dead gorgeous. BMW offers the rims in black, or it wouldn't be hard to have the ones you have painted black. I would go that route before spending money on carbon fiber.

Car looks great. enjoy it.

Beautiful color! This the 1st G20 build that makes me think the new M3 won't be so ugly; this generation has definitely started to grow on me after seeing this.

Exactly the colour I was going to go for in a couple of years when I swap. Amazing to see it in the flesh rather than individualizer website!
Looks really good with shadowline pack - hadn't thought of that.

Like a metallic British Racing Green.
Awesome choice!

Really hope BMW UK make it a standard colour again. There are two Oxford Green E46 cabrios on my street and they still look awesome - one with back interior, one with beige.

Cognac, which is available on the G20/G21, is quite similar to that.
Green over tan: a very cool combo alongside the black the OP has selected.

Fantasy spec would be Oxford Green as per OP, but with Cognac, or the Tartufo merino; on a G21 touring. The latter would kind of recreate the E34 M5 Elekta touring (albeit British Racing Green & Hazelnut).

For everyone who is interested in the shape of the exhaust tailpipe of the M340I. Please see this photo.

Fantastic choice and congrats! I had a 2008 Mustang Bullitt in Dark Highland Green. This is very similar. Best car color.

What's the up charge $$ for individual paint on M340i?

The picture is actually of Hazelnut. Not available anymore, as far as I know. It was an Italian limited edition on the E34 M5 touring. Don't know whether it was available more broadly.

Here is Cognac on my X3 - same seats and same leather.

You should have no regrets though... you don't see the interior when you're driving your straight 6; and the rest of the time you can stand outside and look at your perfectly coloured car!

The next steps will be mounting some M-Performance parts including the CF flaps on the front, CF diffuser, CF spoilerlip, M-steering wheel, maybe later the performance brakes and of course 20 inch wheels such as (hopefully sooner or later) the KW V3 suspension.

Hope you'll enjoy it as much as i do!
Congrats, green looks interesting and unique.

Just curious, did you decide on the M-Adaptive suspension and Track handling package with Extra cooling? What about interior Leather type?

Yes really like that. There really should be more greens available as you prove here, it can really look classy and a refreshing change from the endless greys that we have ( which are nice in their own way but you know what I mean)

Thank you.

No i went for the standard M-suspension just because i will sooner or later change it to a KW-suspension anyway.
Yes i chose the track handling package with the better cooling-system and the bigger brake discs.

The interior is the black venasca with the blue contrast stitching.
As i said earlier in this thread, i wasn't kind enough to go for the cognac. Eventhough it might have been the better choice. But i'm fine with the black leather

Much classier than that other special order purple color. This should be featured on the main page instead.
