M340i: Ask Me Anything

Just picked mine up. Haven't had a chance to drive it very much. What do you want to know?

Haha I should've guessed that's what everyone wants! I'll post pics as soon as the weather permits.

As for options, it's fully loaded. Has everything that was selectable.

The Tanzanite Blue is actually a lot darker than on the configurator, but it's still a beautiful colour. Probably the best colour on a G20.

Also the silver on mirror caps and grill outline is very flat and not bright. I initially wanted the black mirrors and grill, but I'm happy that I went with this instead.

Turbo Lag?

How is the engine? How responsive is it. How noticable is the turbo lag?

What was your previous whip before this? I'm driving a 328i from 07 and yet to find anything besides the Quadrifoglio that met my desires. Probably taking a trip to the nearest dealer tomorrow to test drive an M340i but really want to hear people's opinion if they previously drove an e90.

Saw a video, and you can turn off the AC in the iDrive.

So I'm a 26 year old and a part time real estate investor. I want to get something with power, speed, and pizzaz and that will make girls think I have all the answers.

Have a 2 series and have been eyeing the M340. Does this have the power speed and pizzaz?

It's a dangerous strategy to make the ladies think you have all the answers and turns out you have nothing

You turn it off by simply turning the fan all the way down, like on any other BMW. The button even says OFF on it too.

This. I even posted a pic of the button in another thread. I thought I was missing something
