Anyone know if there are any in depth video reviews of the M340i? I'm curious to see what other people think of the car and how it performs on the road.

I've looked and haven't found any. Went ahead and ordered a M340i xdrive on Monday anyway. Not having driven one or even read a review, it's a little like cliff diving at an all new spot. Hope there aren't any rocks just under the surface.

Yeah I hope the new G20's aren't problematic or unreliable.

All the prototype reviews have been amazing, I recommend watching Schmee150 video about it, for a guy that drives high performance sports cars.... he was having a really good time in the M340i..... I ordered mine in February I can't wait!!!

I watched Schmee's review and I have to agree, he did a good job reviewing it on track, but I'm still curious to know how the car does on public roads. I just wanna know if there are any significant differences with the m340i vs. the 330i rather than just straight line performance

I'd agree. I want to see some real world user reviews than only professionals reviewers. Going to wait for a year before I decide what's my next car going to be.

Same boat... M5 rates are insane right now... and G80 is a year away.
There’s really nothing out right now, well maybe M550, but those rates are also bad in my area.

I always admired the 340, compared to my
Q50 at the time... so figured give the M340 a try for 3 years !
