Just curious about this...also curious how the jet black ones look with black background. Show us your colors!

Mine matches the colour and model, can also tell the difference to yours as mine is mineral white.

Does it match your spec such as laser lights or is this just standard view on all?

I also have the same exclamation mark lol

Same here. I don’t have laser lights but it shows the DRLs for laser lights. But exterior color and spec are spot on. Mine is a non-M sport car.

And out of curiosity. What are the exclamation marks on the hood for in your cars?

There's hardly a "base car" with the G20. They're all very nice!

I guess with the M sport models, it shows M sport wheels and non M sport models, it shows the base wheels.

Burrcold you have the m340i right? Do you have the cerium grey M340i grills? Since those grills are specific for the m340i, they should’ve added that on the graphics for the car too

No, that's what annoys me. It could have been so easy to have a "M340i" model for those of us who have one. It just shows an M Sport 330i as my vehicle (standard wheels, and vertical slats grille). Really not something I'm losing sleep over lol but it would be nice for continuity (kind of like the 360 view of the car is silver).

Yup. I understand. Atleast they’re better than Audi showing a white car on the VC irrespective of the color of the actual car.

Portimao Blue M340i

Looks like there is no separate model for the M340i. Wrong grill, mirror caps, and wheels. Still looks cool though!

Mine used to show the correct color as shown in my ConnectedDrive app and since I got the mandatory "recall" software fix, iDrive shows the same car color but with different grill and mirror caps. I'm more interested if there is an Esys way to cutom select the options and colors on the iDrive display.
