Loving the interior. I have a 330e on order with the Oyster interior - Hope I made the right call.

Enjoy the motor

Installed an aftermarket M Performance splitter today after a horrendous experience ordering a legit OEM splitter. Comparing both, they are exactly the same fit and quality, massively surprised!

My first impressions handling the OEM M Performance splitter were that it felt like a Chinese knock-off - And funnily enough the Chinese Corona virus knockoff was exactly the same.. Minus £400! Fits like a dream.

Mega savings!

Took about 15-20 minutes, it uses 3 existing screws each side and then 4 new self tappers in the centre. No need for Betalink glue around the edges as they sit nice and flush

I popped a few strips of 3M tape in the middle though just for good measure

Will likely get aftermarket skirts after this experience!

Just to let you know those extensions may not fit aftermarket splitters. It's easy to think they are identical in shape and fit but I don't believe they are a 100% fit. Take a look at the below images, these are the aftermarket blades from the aftermarket splitter I have, these are measured against the OEM BMW splitter and as you can see the holes will not align and the shape/angle is different.

Just saying to be prepared...............

Thanks for the heads up! The ones I've found are aftermarket carbon splitters and I've checked the holes and they seem okay - Might pull the plug and see how they are

Collected mine today - G21 M340iX.

Didn't go for black wheels, personally I think the Cerium really works against Tanzanite Blue. I'm loving the cars split personality; stealth factor and under the radar when you want to relax, or make a load of noise and drive like a loon when you don't. Replaces an F30 340 - I had to admit...it's a big leap forward

Looking good! Dealer had a touring in Tanzanite Blue with the Cerium bits, love the wheels in Cerium Grey for sure.

Looks great, first touring I've seriously considered but wife was dead set against it so M340i saloon in Dravit Grey is on its way for me. I've also stuck with the standard coloured bits as I think the wheels look better. The wing mirror caps might have to get swapped though..

Black wheels are a nightmare to keep clean, a wise choice 👍
